Happy Drop Everything and Read (D.E.A.R.) day! Do you remember celebrating this day in school? I used to love Beverly Clearly and the Ramona book series growing up!
In honor of the love of reading, today is the perfect time for you all to join us in the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge. This challenge was started to promote reading to young children while also encouraging the bond between parents and their little ones. There is a multitude of research on the benefits of reading to young children and its impact on later academic success. If you’d like to learn more about this challenge, head over to our dedicated 1000 Books page. We’ve signed up at our local library and we’d love for you and your little ones to join us!
