Do you remember your favorite books from childhood? Maybe you still have them or they are at your mom's house or dad's shelf. What made them so interesting? Perhaps the book helped you make sense of your world (like the Phantom Tollbooth) or gave you a space for wonder and learning (Dinotopia anyone?).
This Children's Book Week, we invite you to Read Books. Spark Change. It's never too early or too late to read with kids. The benefits to their language and understanding and creativity can start at any time.
