March is National Reading Month! Children’s books offer opportunities for practicing executive function skills, like focus, self-control and critical thinking that help us thrive in school and in life.
This month we highlight brain building tips from Vroom and Mind in the Making that promote a foundation for reading through books, storytelling, play, and more.
Celebrate Reading Month with Books and Storytelling
Fun With Stories
When reading with your child, involve them in the story. Have fun with your words and how you use your voice. When your child makes comments, follow up and encourage them to tell you more. Help your child make connections between what they see in the book and what’s around them.
When you make storytelling fun, you are helping your child develop a lifelong love of language.
