It's no lie that many American children are not read to enough and are struggling to achieve literacy every single day. As more parents become addicted to their cell phones, or worse, give their child a smartphone to stare into every time they need to focus( you do know a child will behave if you lay out the expectations and stick to them, don't you? Not only that, a child MUST learn how to behave in the world, and putting them in front of a distraction device doesn't teach them that at all...and since you're reading my blog, I'll assume you aren't that parent). Children need their parents to read to them. AND they need their parents to show them how to read. It takes as little as 15 minutes a day.
To celebrate literacy, Dr. Seuss Day lands on March 2nd of every year. You should take this day to throw yourself and your children into the beautiful words of Dr. Seuss. Here is an activity. You can find more HERE.
