Read 20 Minutes a Day

Why are we encouraging READ 20?  Spending 20 minutes of focused time reading with your child makes a lasting impression on them, helps their reading comprehension, and builds their imagination and creativity.  Most importantly you're spending time together.  Let reading together be a part of their childhood memories!   #READ20
