Happy World Book Day! Reading is a wonderful way to spend quality time with your young reader. Reading to your child will build vocabulary skills, improve comprehension, provides a wonderful avenue for bonding, provides positive modeling, improves listening skills, provides a way to discover classics, and ultimately fosters a love for reading and learning!
