Did you know?

  • Children who read frequently develop stronger reading skills.
  • According to the National Education Association, having kids read a lot is one of the crucial components of becoming a good reader.
  • Young readers need to become practiced at recognizing letters and sounds. The only way to get good at it is to practice.
  • The U.S. Department of Education found that, generally, the more students read for fun on their own time, the higher their reading scores.
