A TIP FROM YOUR LIBRARY…..
READ TO YOUR KIDS! IT IS ONE OF THE BEST GIFTS YOU CAN GIVE THEM!
Establishing a reading routine with your kids can increase and accelerate their vocabulary, oral language development and social skills, and even improve their self-esteem. Here are four reasons to fall in love with family reading:
1. Higher Test Scores:
The National Coalition for Literacy notes that children who are involved in family literacy activities score 10 points higher on standardized reading tests.
2. Appreciation of Education:
A Kent State University study showed marked improvement from both kids and parents in their attitude towards education when they actively spent time reading together.
3. Increased Earnings:
The National Children’s Reading Foundation notes that for every year you read with your child, their average lifetime earnings may increase by $50,000.
4 Quality Time:
Reading together for 20 minutes a day for five years provides 600 hours of quality bonding time with your child.
Days are getting shorter so it is time to check out all the new books at the library.
Scroll to the bottom of this page for a look at some of the featured new books and then stop by the library.
Check out the shelves, check out a book or two. We have something for everyone!
It’s time to curl up with a great read….we can fix you up with that!
