February 5 is World Read Aloud Day, founded by LitWorld to celebrate and spread the word about the importance of reading aloud to children.
Reading with children is very important because it:
- Stimulates imagination, concentration, and listening
- Promotes brain development
- Helps improve language skills
- Facilitates understanding of the world
To celebrate, we are launching #funreadsfeb! For the rest of the month we will be sharing tips on reading with children.
If you are a parent or anyone with a child in your life that you can read to, keep an eye out for more tips coming soon!
