Tip for Building Literacy: Be careful about focusing too much on reading levels. While it’s good to choose challenging books, you want children to enjoy reading. Allow them to choose books they like which may be easy to read. When children feel confident, they will read more!

♥Tip for Building Literacy: Model good reading habits for your children. Let them see you reading. Share your excitement about reading a book. Explain why it’s important to read labels and directions before using things. So often children do what you “do” more than what you say.  Your children will likely follow your reading habits.
