Reading at Home = School Success

Check out these Facts on the importance of Reading:

Children who are read to at home have a higher success rate in school.
Twenty-six percent of children who were read to three or four times in the last week by a family member recognized all letters of the alphabet. (This is compared to 14 percent of children who were read to less frequently.)
ALSO....
The NCES reported that children who were read to frequently are also more likely to:
- count to 20, or higher than those who were not (60% vs. 44%)
- write their own names (54% vs. 40%)
 - read or pretend to read (77% vs. 57%)
SWEET!!
