Thrive After Three

Children's librarians, school librarians, and parents may really enjoy the knowledge and programming ideas shared on Lisa M. Shaia's blog Thrive After Three. Shaia, a children's librarian since 2005, regularly posts ideas for increasing literacy through storytimes, clubs, and other programs designed to make reading a fun and engaging endeavor for children. One of Shaia's most recent blog posts includes a graphic from Scholastic's Kids & Family Reading Report that details how reading for fun rapidly decreases in children between ages 8-9. Ideas for educators and librarians to help encourage pleasure reading include making eye-catching displays that specifically draw in kids in that age group, informal BYOB (bring your own book) book clubs, partnering with parents and community members, etc. Other notable posts include Shaia's recent month-long program called the Mary Poppins Club, which included reading the classic P.L. Travers story aloud combined with watching short clips of the 1964 film. Students also played a game comparing scenes in the book with scenes in the movie. Shaia is also an accomplished author; interested visitors can read about her works via the about me tab, along with a list of blog categories to browse through.
