Studies show that reading for pleasure helps to build literacy skills like comprehension and vocabulary, and helps boost student academic success. Reading at school is one step to success. When a student reads at home, it can make even more of a difference! Help to create a positive reading environment at home by regulary visiting the public library, giving books to your child as gifts, and making a quiet, cosy corner in your home for reading fun every evening. Make it a family affair by grabbing a book to read for yourself!
