Read With Your Kids
(or nieces, nephews, grandkids, etc.)
- Books can be free. You can borrow them from the library, swap them with friends, or find some really cheap at Goodwill or thrift stores.
- Reading is an adventure. Think back to elementary school. Which teacher did you remember most? Did he or she read to you? I would say 8 out of 10 people fondly remember a teacher who read aloud to them.
- Reading is fun. There are tons of great books out there nowadays. Don’t believe me? Check out the Hank Zipzer series by Henry Winkler. Young and old alike can relate to Hank’s problems!
- Reading promotes learning. This is just my opinion and is only backed by observation and not research, but I truly believe that children who are read to often do better in school.
- Did I mention that reading is fun….?
What was your favorite book when you were a child? Or perhaps a current favorite?
