Did you know that March is National Reading Month? To support a month of reading (and beyond) we are excited to share some of our favorite ways to champion literary.
1. Check out a subscription reading service like GiftLit where you can give your kids a monthly gift of reading. We love that they have everything from Board Books to Picture Books to those for kids Ages 12 to 14.
2. Support organizations like Read Across America where you can find resources to plan your own reading event, more resources to get reading and much more.
3. Start reading from the start with our favorite new book series for babies from Nursery Books. Developed by Sophie Helenek, this fun series includes four boardbooks, specially dedicated to infants developmental growth milestones. Each of the four books, FRUITS, SKY WONDERS, SHAPES and MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS include high contrast, black and white and bold color illustrations which promote visual and speech stimulation. The My First Book was developed on the ultra-complex and rapid development of newborns, babies, and toddlers. For instance, reading aloud to a baby stimulates developing senses, and builds listening and memory skills that can help a baby grow up to be a reader. A few benefits of reading aloud to a child are that it: promotes listening skills, Increases the number of vocabulary words babies hear, develops attention span and memory and it Help babies learn to understand the meanings of words.
4. Check out Scribd, the Netflix-like e-book subscription service that lets you read as many books as you want for $8.99/month, is raising awareness of the cause and helping to make an impact by offering a free three-month subscription to everyone in the country on March 3.
