It is amazing what twenty minutes of reading a day can do to jump-start a child’s ability to learn to read. In an effort to promote reading early with children, Scholastic has started a Reading Bill of Rights. Yes, that’s right, the Reading Bill of Rights. It’s a great concept: every child has the right to be able to read, write and understand the written word.
What can you do to ensure that children “Read Every Day–Lead a Better Life?” Take a look at Scholastic’s checklists for parents, caregivers and others. (We like that the parents’ list includes signing up your child for a library card!)
Make the pledge to read every day. After all, it is your right.
