As parents, you want what’s best for your children. When your child participates in an educational reading program (promising to raise your child’s reading and comprehension levels), you’re giving them the chance to succeed in many different ways. Through early exposure to books, kids develop vocabulary skills and learn to recognize letters and words – giving their written communication skills a big boost.
