  • Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:
    • Set the example. Let children see you read.
    • Have a collection of books in your home. Update this collection routinely to keep up with changing tastes and reading skills.
