Get Caught Reading Month

May is Get Caught Reading Month

Spending time reading with your child is one of the most important things you can do as a family. Besides the fact that you are reinforcing reading and building reading skills, spending time reading gives you valuable one-to-one time with your child.

I am talking about actually reading together.  I was sitting in a restaurant the other day with my husband, when I looked over and noticed a father and son sitting at a table close by. They were both reading…however, they were both reading their own I-Pads, separately. There was no interaction or conversation going on between the two. That is not what I call reading together.

Take time this month, and throughout the summer, for family reading time. I am sure you will enjoy those special moments with your child.
