Read Across America & the Benefits of Reading to Your Child!

My apologies for my late posting and not posting this on March 2nd...but last Friday was NEA's Read Across America Day!

The National Education Association (NEA) began "Read Across America" as an annual program geared towards motivating children in every community to celebrate reading on March 2nd, the birth date of Theodor Seuss Geisel a.k.a. Dr. Suess.

Don't worry if you missed the actual day, it's never a bad idea to read to your child on a daily basis. Here are 10 reasons to read to your child daily:

1. Building a stronger relationship between you and your child.
2. Developing a higher aptitude for learning.
3. Developing basic or better speech skills.
4. Learning the basics of how to read.
5. Developing better communication skills.
6. Learning the fundamentals of language.
7. Developing logical thinking skills.
8. Acclamation to new experiences.
9. Developing enhanced concentration and discipline skills.
10. Learning that reading is fun!
