Here are a few things to do at home during National Family Literacy Month:
• Set aside a little time for reading every day, even if it is only 15 or so minutes. Even if your child is a baby, just looking at pictures and hearing your voice can have a profound effect on your child’s learning later in life.
• Read the book version of your child’s favorite movie to them.
Remember, reading helps with vocabulary, writing skills, attention span, memory and teaches us about other times and places. Be a great example and read in our garden space. Let your children enjoy unusual garden reading nooks, designed just for them!
