Family Read Alouds

 

Reading books aloud as a family is a perfect way to spend time together while also increasing children's reading skills. Listening to stories helps kids who are learning, and who know how to read, by building their vocabulary and comprehension skills. And above all, there's nothing quite like sharing a story with someone.
