Read Aloud From Birth
March is National Read Aloud month and to spread the word, we are sharing a new early learning tip every day.
"You are your child's first and most important teacher. Embrace this opportunity to make your child the best and brightest he or she can be."
Reading with your child is the easiest and best way you can help them become readers themselves. Ask a librarian about books to share at every age.
