Raising Readers

"You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book." - Dr Suess

 

Research has shown that reading for enjoyment has many benefits. Yet, the amount of time children spend reading leisurely has decreased over the years. The Raising Readers workshop provides an invaluable opportunity for parents to learn how to instill a love of reading in their children from young. Participants can expect to learn how to identify their children's reader type and choose the correct books for them. A variety of appropriate reading materials and NLB eResources will be shared as well.
