Without doubt, reading with children spells success for early literacy. Putting a few simple strategies into action will make a significant difference in helping children develop into good readers and writers. Through reading aloud, providing print materials, and promoting positive attitudes about reading and writing, you can have a powerful impact on children's literacy and learning.

Read from a variety of children's books, including fairy tales, song books, poems, and information books. Reading well is at the heart of all learning. Children who can't read well, can't learn. Help make a difference for a child.
