Reading aloud with your child—even if they can already read themselves—has many benefits. Children whose parents read aloud to them are more likely to have better literacy skills and language than those whose parents do not. In addition to promoting these skills, it also enhances the parent-child bond and relationship. And, of course, reading with your child can help foster a love of language and books.
March is Women's History Month, which celebrates the contributions and achievements women have made over the course of history. March 8th is International Women's Day, which is a "global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women." This year's theme is "Choose to Challenge," particularly when it comes to gender bias and inequity.
