Reading a BOOK/ Watching the MOVIE

November and December are notoriously busy times for families. Since the weather is getting colder, and families are visiting more often, it is also the PERFECT time to spend quality time with your children. Life is very busy, so don't just wait for the ideal time to read with your child. Schedule it! Set an alarm on your phone or write it in the calendar like it is an appointment.

Over the next few weeks, spend time reading a few books or a novel together. Then, watch the movie version as a family. Your children will love this quality time with you, and it is a meaningful way to make connections with books.
