Raising a Reader

September 30 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Why is raising a reader so important? On a basic level, reading is a fundamental part of existing. Think about your typical day. How often are you reading something – street signs, reports, emails, grocery labels, medication, newspapers, websites, and stories to our kids? This workshop offers an understanding of how to engage your child in reading. Reading to our children routinely in their early years increases their language development, helps your child develop an attention span and concentration skills. A child who reads well is more likely to develop positive self-esteem, independence and many other skills needed to last throughout their life.
