Be selfish, for once

Instead of simply encouraging your child to finish his assigned summer reading list, be selfish, for once: pick up his book and read aloud to your child.

There’s something wonderfully fulfilling and satisfying about the process.

When reading aloud to a child, we know we’re doing something right. That’s a plus. But it’s personally rewarding, too, to snuggle up and share a good read.

So escape the pile of wet swim towels dumped on the floor and lemonade spilled on the counter: grab your child and his book and start reading to him.
