Read at Home

  • Reading is a critical part of every child’s learning and growth and important to their individual development that opens a world of greater understanding about self, others, and the world.  We encourage families to promote reading at home and engage in conversations about print or digital books while reading TO children, With children or BY children. Reading at home provides meaningful interactions between children and their families.
