#Close the Word Gap

Parent Child ReadPresident Barack Obama joined Clinton, McCain, and Frist in reaching out to parents to close the learning gap. Join these powerful politicians and the organization Too Small To Fail in sharing the message with parents and caretakers about how important it is to read with your child!

Reading with your child promotes reading, vocabulary, and comprehension. Talk with your child about the books you read together. Talk about the pictures and illustrations. Ask your child if s/he can guess what happens next. Explore any new words that come up in the text. The more time you spend reading with your child and talking about what you read, the more your child will learn!

Children are the gift of our future.
