    Reading for Pleasure

    True literacy combines fundamental skills with an enthusiasm and respect for reading and learning.  The 2000 National Assessment of Educational Progress demonstrates that children who read for fun are better readers.  Additionally, those who read a wide variety of genres are more likely to have fun with reading and to make it a permanent part of their lives.  (TV-Turnoff Network)

    • Always make books available to your child. 
    • Take trips to the public library.

    • Read with your child. 
    • Ask your child about the books he or she is reading. 
    • Encourage your child to try new genres.
