READ TOGETHER!

1,000 books before kindergarten may sound daunting, but if you start reading at birth it only takes one book a day to reach 1,826 by the time your child is 5 years old.  Reading aloud to your children is not only a fun way to spend time together but will improve their vocabulary and aid in their success of reading independently as they enter school.

"Children's author and reading advocate Mem Fox (memfox.com) encourages parents to 'read at least three stories a day; it may be the same story three times.  Children need to hear a thousand stories before they can begin to learn to read.  Or the same story a thousand times!'" 

Think of all the adventures you can have with these stories! Kids love it and you will too.
Check out Mem Fox's page "for parents" for some very interesting tidbits.
