BOTH WEBINARS highlight the role parents play in developing a love for reading to their child/ren. Reading books aloud stimulates a child’s imagination and expands their understanding of the world. Conversations that flow from books enable parents and their children to explore new ideas and concepts while also developing a love for reading and memories that will last a lifetime. Reading aloud is a gift you can freely give your children from the day you bring them home from the hospital until the time they leave the nest.
