Teachers and parents can help young children be successful in school and in life by doing one thing each and every day... READ aloud to them!

This course helps explain how regular reading activities actually promote development across three learning domains:
  • Cognitive - problem solving and language development
  • Social - interactions with others
  • Emotional - how children feel about their self-worth
Participants in this course will learn about the importance of reading, book selection and techniques for reading aloud.
