National Family Reading Month

Now in its 19th year, National Family Reading Month is designed to get more kids reading with their families.
We know that reading role models and shared reading time are critical to a child’s learning and literacy development. In fact, research shows that family reading time is one of the BEST ways to grow a child’s interest in the wonderful world of books. Kids who read, succeed!
This month we are encouraging families to read for at least 10 minutes with their children every day.
Visit for some handy tips for family reading and fun activities. I hope your household is filled with hours of delight as you experience the pleasures and benefits of reading every day during the month of May.
Happy reading!
