november is family literacy month


November is Family Literacy Month, and your child’s most important teacher is YOU.

It’s never too early, or too late, to start reading regularly to your children. Reading to your child, from birth (and even earlier) to beyond, will help build the foundation for a healthy and promising future. It will light up their imagination and their appreciation of the world around them.

For tips on choosing books for your child, our parenting website One Tough Job has you covered from 0-12 months, 1-2 years, 2-3 years, and 3-5 years.
