“The whole world opened to me when I learned to read.”
— Mary McLeod Bethune
If you’re anything like me, you’re always looking for ways to help your child read more, and more, and MORE. There’s no such thing as too many books, are we right? t:
Reading: the ultimate form of self-care!
2. Owning your own books matters. A lot.
When children have a home library, as few as 20 books of their own at home (think: one bookshelf full), they achieve three more years of schooling than children who don’t have any books at home.
3. It doesn’t take much to read a lot of words.
4. And all that reading pays off.
Children who read 1,000,000 words a year are in the top two percent of reading achievement.
5. Reading is the fastest way to build vocabulary.
6. Classroom libraries rule.
Kids in classrooms without classroom libraries read 50 percent less than kids in classrooms with libraries.
7. Every book counts.
if you just read one book a day to a child
they will have been read 1825 books by their 5th birthday Thats alot of books
everyday counts. every book counts.
