Reading Tips of the Month
Reading Enjoyment Starts at Home!
Families play a big part in growing a child’s love for reading! This month, we’re sharing with you the Red Oak Foundation’s fantastic reading tips that will grow your child’s love for reading. See how many you already do or can begin to do with your kids!
- Read the same book as often as your child wants to enjoy it.
- Take books on bus rides or doctor visits to make waiting happy time.
- Store books where children can get them and “play read” any time.
- Let your child relax and enjoy what little ones love most – your voice, your closeness and care.
Thank you to the Red Oak Foundation for all you do to promote reading in the Fort Worth community!
