Encourage Their Love of Reading

readWhether or not your child likes to read, reading can be lots of fun when paired with an activity! If you’re reading a St. Patrick’s Day themed book with your child, you can have a “leprechaun hunt” around the house, or create your own rainbow! After reading If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, it would be fun to bake cookies together!  (For more suggestions on reading with your children, click here.)
