Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons Read A Loud

Why is Reading A Loud to Children Important?
No matter if your child is in a traditional classroom or being homeschooled, reading aloud is incredibly beneficial. It builes speech and language, increases attention span, is a safe way to explore strong emotions and builds connections between written and spoken words. Try hard to make reading a loud part of your daily activities that you do together with your young learner.
