November is National Family Literacy Month! Studies show that reading aloud with family is the most important activity when it comes to preparing children to read on their own. And if you raise a good reader… pretty much anything is possible! Reading helps with vocabulary, writing skills, attention span, memory, and teaches us about other times and places. Even if your child is just a baby, they can look at pictures and listen to your voice as you read stories to them. Studies show that that alone can have a profound effect on your child when it comes to learning later on in life. This month, get the whole family snuggled up on the couch and open up a few good books. We have some great children’s books at the library. Stop in and check them out!
