NATIONAL FAMILY LITERACY MONTH

This month, get the whole family snuggled up on the couch and open up a good book. Studies show that reading aloud with mom or dad is the most important activity when it comes to preparing children to read on their own. And if you raise a good reader… Pretty much anything is possible! Reading helps with vocabulary, writing skills, attention span, and memory, and teaches us about other times and places.

If you are reading to toddlers or other young children, try to remember when you were young, and the way you liked listening to your parents or teachers read with excitement in their voice, and when they gave you enough time to look at the pictures as well as listening to the words. 
 
Set aside a little time for reading every day, even if it’s only for 15 or so minutes.
Take a few trips to the library.
Read your child the book version of their favorite movie. If they can read on their own, encourage them to read it!
