As parents think about how to set their children on a path toward success, reading should be a priority. It’s a critical component of daily life, from a simple task list, to navigating road signs, to negotiating the purchase contract on a new home. As a young student, children must learn to read in order to understand and succeed in other subjects, including science, history and math.
Make Books a Part of Children’s Daily Life
Read aloud to babies and toddlers so they hear and start to identify individual sounds. Find books about subjects that interest your children, whether it’s sports, games or cooking. And make books available in the home.
