Reading Suggestions

One of the most important things you can do to help your children succeed in school is to read to them every day.  Here is a list of books that they will enjoy, but you can read anything age-appropriate to them: advertisements, cereal boxes, billboards, magazines, newspapers, even video game instructions!  Let your child see the words you are reading, and talk about what they mean - what's happening in the story, what the ad is trying to sell and why, what the instructions say to do, etc.
