Reading Play

What do children learn from Reading Play? 

Early literacy skills are the foundation of all learning, and third grade reading proficiency is a critical benchmark. Until grade three children learn to read, after grade three, children read to learn. 

Reading to your child encourages a love of learning. Making reading at bedtime a routine makes bedtime a positive experience for children and parents.
