Parents out there--Please make reading a top priority in your home. Reading is the foundation for success in all school subjects. Read aloud to your children, no child is too old to read to. Jim Trelease, a reading advocate, recommends reading interesting newspaper articles, etc. to teenage children while they are doing the dishes. Check out his website at www.trelease-on-reading.com Younger children who can read still enjoy being read to. Children can listen and understand books that they can not read themselves. Buy your kids books, enforce daily reading time most school's recommend, and model good reading behavior.
