    Amy, you don't need electronic gimmicks to instill a love of reading in your kids. Read to them when they're preschoolers. Encourage trips to the library and help them select stuff that's age appropriate. And be a role model for them.

    Read the kids' books yourself and buy them as gifts. Talk to your kids about the stories. Help them summarize them and analyze what they liked about them. That is--hint, hint--teaching them how to do book reports.

    I'd suggest you get rid of the television while you're at it. I have yet to meet someone who pulled the plug and later regretted it.
