“Children learn to read by reading… but not without instructional support. It’s well known that in order to become thoughtful, strategic, proficient readers, children need to read a lot. When children read extensively, they learn about themselves, other people, and the world; they learn that reading is something they can do that empowers them to control their lives, connect with each other, and make the world a better place.” (Miller & Moss, 2013, p. 1)
