Reading Magic

Harry Potter turns 20?!  Not Daniel Radcliffe, the actor, but the book series.

In 1997, a small publishing company took a chance on a book written by J.K. Rowling.  20 years later, teachers credit her with boosting literacy rates and for creating readers who otherwise would have never picked up a book.

Summer makes more time for reading, or at least makes us hope for “beach reads”.

Here are a few proven true favorites for you and your little one.

 

And if no one can sit still, get outside!  Take a walk around the block, or even your yard.  Search for things you might not have seen before!  Every summer day does not have to be filled with day trips, museums, play dates, and swim class.  Take in your surroundings right outside the door.

Now, let’s play!
