National Family Literacy Month

November 1, 2020 @ 8:00 am November 30, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

National Family Literacy Month is an annual designation observed in November. 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, memory, and teaches us about other times and places. Even if your child is just a baby, you should still sit down and read with them every once in a while. An infant can look at pictures and listen to your voice as you read stories to them… And believe it or not, studies show that that alone can have a profound effect on your child when it comes to learning later on in life.
