Reading is FUN!

June 7, 2017

A good book can steal your heart at any age – whether it’s being read to you or you’re reading it all on your own. Not only is reading a whole lot of fun, but children who read for pleasure have been found to have better vocabulary, spelling, and math skills later in life. So get comfy, snuggle up, and crack open one of these classics with your kids this summer.
