Reading is the most important part of a person’s education, because once they can read, the entire world of knowledge opens before their eyes. Reading aloud to our kids is part of our every day. Our kids also read to us and on their own. Some of our kiddos are voracious and others are reluctant. Some picked it up easily and some struggle with dyslexia. No matter what their situation though, we’ve taught all of our children to read a lot and well, because it’s one of the best gifts we can give them. Here’s to bookworms everywhere.
