Parents can give children a tremendous advantage in school and in life by helping prepare them for reading success
· Parents know their children best and can help them learn in ways and at times that are easiest for them.
· Young children have short attention spans. Parents and caregivers can engage children in language and literacy activities for short bits of time throughout the day.
· Parents are tremendous role models–children are more likely to want to read if they see that their parents value and enjoy reading.
· Children learn best by doing—and they love doing things with their parents.
