What if there was ONE thing you could do that would absolutely improve your child’s ability in school? What if it were free? Well, there is! Research has shown the single most important activity for building the knowledge for eventual success, is reading aloud to children. Jim Trelease, national reading expert and the author of The Read-Aloud Handbook, states that reading aloud to your child “conditions the child to associate reading with pleasure, creates background knowledge, and provides a reading role model.” I hear many parents say, “Sure I know I should read to my child, but who has time?” What if I told you it would take only 15 minutes a day?
