Reading matters and raising a reader is a goal that all parents should strive for!  By reading to our kids in the early years, we lay the vital foundation for raising a reader.  By continuing to read on a regular basis and then encouraging independent reading in the later years, we build on this foundation.

It is a fact that reading is a fundamental part of our world.  But raising a reader goes much deeper than this basic need to function.  Reading is a fundamental part of education, a basis for working vocabulary development, and a fundamental factor in language development in children.  This, in turn, leads to the development of solid skills and habits necessary for lifelong achievement, success, and the quest for knowledge.
