The March 2 birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss kicks off National Reading Month, with a goal to motivate kids to read every day of the year. Different events and contests encourage kids to pick up different types of books and read. Even your littlest ones can benefit from books. A recent report of the National Early Literacy Panel highlights that literacy skills begin to develop at birth. Visit a local library to pick out new books, check out a story hour or listen to audio books (we recommend a few in this month’s Book Nook here) to foster your family’s love of reading. And because kids are watching you, so this month let them see you reading the newspaper, a magazine or your favorite book!
