Share a Story - Shape a Future
March 7 - 11, 2011

This is the 3rd annual blog tour for literacy:

Riley Carney will be visiting with Carol Rasco at Rasco from RIF.

Chris Singer (
BookDads) has lined up nearly two dozen (!) dad bloggers (who also happen to be readers, writers, educators) to talk about the gift of reading.

Mary Ann Scheur (
Great Kids Books) will be reviewing iPad books and talk about them in the context of promoting literacy when Danielle Smith hosts Literacy 2.0 at There's a Book.

At a
Year of Reading, Mary Lee Hahn and Franki Sibberson will be talking about ways to balance literacy fun and school. Mitali Perkins, Barbara Dee, Katie Davis, Courtney Sheinmel, and others will be sharing Writer's Notebook ideas/photos at The Reading Zone.

In her
post today, Sarah Mulhern (The Reading Zone) said that "A great group of authors have volunteered to share their stories about the gift of reading- both giving the gift and receiving it. Also on Friday, author / illustrator Elizabeth Dulemba will be sharing authors' stories about when they fell in love with reading.

So here's first 3 writing prompts for Share a Story 2011.

· Who was the first person from a book (real or imagined) that you wanted to be when you were a child? Why?

· When you were a teen, what book character did you most want to be friends with? Would you want to be their friend now?

· If you could spend the day with three of your favorite story characters, who would they be? Would they like each other?

· What book resonated with you as a warning of a life on the wrong path?

The goal with the questions is to reach new places for sharing our reading and literacy experiences and ideas. Here's how it works:

1. Select the question(s) that resonates with you.
2. Find an old post or write a new one that answers the question.

4. Tweet your post and include @ShareaStory or the #SAS2011hashtag.
