By reading aloud just 15 minutes a day, you are “feeding” your child’s brain by building vocabulary and life-long literacy skills. And remember, it doesn’t have to be 15 minutes in a row, and you don’t have to finish the book!

You will be creating a lifetime interest in reading that will help them in all areas of their education, as well as social and emotional development. Pick up a book and #Read!
