editor’s choice The Value of Reading Aloud to Your Child It’s a time to celebrate and spur your child’s interest in reading and literacy. Reading aloud to your child every day is one very effective way to do just that! Unfortunately, more than half the children in this country will not hear a bedtime story tonight, according to the Read Aloud 15 Minutes Campaign. They are out to spread an important and powerful message – read aloud for at least 15 minutes to every child every day. BY: Rebecca Eanes 21
