June: Article on As They Grow: THE IMPORTANCE OF READING ON CHILD DEVELOPMENT

Imagine laying by the pool reading a novel on the best seller list or better yet a harlequin romance that requires no brain power.  Now “SPLASH“…… that’s the sound of your child jumping into the pool and drenching you and your book.

Your reading list of those kinds of books may have been replaced by books you and your children enjoy.  Reading with your children is a great way to spend time together and lay a strong foundation for their educational success.  If you read just one book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years.  Find a local program/library that reinforces “1000 books before kindergarten”.
