Learn to Love Reading



Happy New Year! On this first weekend of 2013, spend time instilling a love of reading in your children, even if it's just reading aloud to your baby there are huge benefits!

From exciting science books that answer questions like 'Why is milk white?" to children's books that help little ones cope with the effects of natural disasters, there's much learning and fun to be had in books. Plus check out Scholastic's app Storia for reading fun on your iPad.
