We all know that reading is important for children’s development. Studies even show that babies benefit from reading with their caregivers well before they can even grasp language. But, there is something simple you can do to significantly improve the language and reading skills of the children in your lives. It’s called Active Reading.
Charlotte Mecklenburg Library is encouraging parents and caregivers to learn about and practice Active Reading. Just 15 minutes of Active Reading a day, three times a week, can help build children's vocabulary, language and comprehension. Watch a video to learn more, then come to one of our parent workshops to practice Active Reading in a fun group setting!
