As you know, reading at home for fun has long-lasting benefits. It builds vocabulary, comprehension, and phonological awareness. Each of these skills is a prerequisite for later success in reading, but of even greater importance is that frequent, pleasurable reading time spent with family to fall in love with the joy and power of books! Celebrate reading more this May in a way that works well for your family. Make a personal reading challenge and encourage the whole family to do the same. Join in the fun along with author Josh Pyke, our National Family Reading Month Ambassador for 2022.
