"Children are made readers on the laps of their parents."
This quote from Emilie Buchwald explains the value
of parents in the reading process. Let your children see
you as a reader yourself. Show that you value reading.
Children learn best when they model things around
them - and their first model is you.
Read to them and with them as often as possible.
You will make better readers and lifelong learners through
practice and exposure to reading.
