“The Night Before Christmas,” “The Very Hungry Caterpillar,” and any great Dr. Seuss book have become shared memories for generations of kids and adults for a reason.
If you haven’t tried B.J. Novak’s new “The Book with No Pictures,” I highly recommend it; it’s guaranteed to leave your kids laughing out loud at your special voices and sound effects.
Reading aloud with your children is the perfect New Year’s resolution — it’s free and creates a lasting impact on your child’s educational success.
This year, it’s easier than ever to make this resolution with your family if you live in an apartment community that offers the Raising a Reader program.
This national literacy program teaches parents how to become their child’s first teacher.
During the 10-15 week program, a trained facilitator works with parents to ease their fears about reading to kids and helps them develop good reading habits.
Learning to read with your child and helping them become literate adults will get them on a path for success.
Please ask your community manager if they offer the Raising a Reader program.
Over the past few years, thousands of families have participated in this successful program, and the Arizona Multihousing Association can now help communities launch this anywhere in the state.
