Children who read at home with their parents perform better in school.
Show your kids how much you value reading by keeping good books,

book about? Why did a character act that way? What will he or she
Look for other ways to teach children the magic of language, words,
and stories. Tell stories to your children about their families
and their culture. Point out words to children wherever you go-to
the grocery, to the pharmacy, to the gas station. Encourage your
children to write notes to grandparents and other relatives.
