Did you ever wonder... if your pet has a personality? That's just one of the daily wonders that are explored on Wonderopolis, a website for families with young children from the National Center for Family Literacy. We are so worried about kids' reading skills these days that we sometimes forget that kids need background knowledge to become readers too. It doesn't do any good if a kid learns to decode the word "personality" and has no idea what the word means! Sites like this that encourage kids to explore issues that interest them are even more important to raising a reader than learning the skills of reading.
