Get Children Refocused on the Written Word #Sponsored

As a mommy to two girls, who are 2 and 5, I find it really important to read to them every single day. I find it increases their vocabulary and imagination. As my 5 year old is entering Kindergarten later this year, I believe now is more crucial than ever, to read to her. We read 20 minutes at least, every single night before bed.

    Thanks for this information. I am a school teacher of young children and this is a BIG problem in our country. The written word is being lost. I try to help children capture the love of books at an early age!

  2. reading has always been something myself and now my children do all the time with my grandchildren. I did it with my kids and they have continued. I have one grandson that is in 1st grade and reading at a 4th grade level right now and they won’t even let him choose books the others are reading, too easy for him. I think since starting at birth, they love hearing stories and reading becomes such a big part of their lives then. Thanks for all this information

    I agree with you. Reading is one of the most important things you can do with your child.

  4. My mother was a librarian and instilled in my sister and me a love of reading and books.

    I love this infographic. I think reading, writing, and basic math skills are very important to instill at an early age so that kids can grow into critical thinkers. Not related to reading and writing- but was recently in a graduate level class that had 100/150 in a problem on an exam. No calculators were allowed and only 5 of 38 students could reduce that fraction without the aid of a calculator. That is a sad reflection on our education system.

  6. I think people should read more. Real books, paper books.

    Those reading statistics are scary! People need to commit to reading at least 1/2 hour a day. Thank you for sharing.
