March is Reading Month!
We all know that reading to our kids is important. But do you really make time to do it every day? Well, this is the month to make reading with your kids a priority, Mamas!
In celebration of Reading Month, LeapFrog is challenging YOU to read to your kids just 20 minutes each day.
“Studies show that the more children read, the better readers they become. In one study, children who read 20 or more minutes per day scored in or above the 90th percentile; those who read less than 10 minutes scored below the 75th percentile.*
But it’s not simply about reading more. Children who are actively engaged as they read—thinking about what they are reading versus looking passively at the words on the page—have been shown to regularly outperform children who are less engaged in what they are reading.”
Take the LeapFrog Reading Month Pledge
You can take LeapFrog’s 20 Minute Reading Month Pledge, and if you share one of their posts about it, LeapFrog will even donate five books to public elementary school through the charity, We Give Books.
LeapFrog offers fun tools to actively engage even the youngest readers. My little J.C. loves the cause and effect of the Tag Junior system and the board books hold up to his frequent (and often rough) use.
