"Children are made readers on the laps of their parents." ~ Emilie Buchwald

It’s never too early to start reading to your baby. Reading to your child at an early age will help build your child’s vocabulary, stimulate their imagination, and improve their communication skills.

The below websites provide tips for helping your child build the skills they need to become successful readers.
