"Every child needs adults who will help her find books - good books - that have special appeal," said Dr. Elizabeth Segel, author of "For Reading Out Loud" and co-founder of Beginning with Books, an award-winning family literacy organization."Developing a love of books is the best guarantee that a child will become a good reader," Segel said."A good reader will be a successful student.That is a huge asset for a disadvantaged child."Segel lists other benefits books provide - they can offer a healthy escape from daily life, they illustrate children facing and overcoming challenges, and they portray different types of families, possibly happier ones than the child has experienced.Author Caldwell says that about half of her readers identify with quiet, fearful Elizabeth, and the other half with the expressive, close-knit Sheridan siblings."I hoped Ocean might be a lens for people of both backgrounds to understand each other - foster kids who have suffered losses and built walls and kids from tightly-knit families," she says. "Often, children will be interested in a book that is too hard for them to read," Segel said.Then there's the no-fail bedtime trick that Segel used on her own kids.
