May Is Get Caught Reading Month

It’s hard to believe that May is already here! May just happens to be Get Caught Reading Month. Get Caught Reading is a campaign sponsored by The Association of American Publishers (AAP) to promote literacy nationwide, with a special focus on children’s literacy:
Because of research indicating that early language experience actually stimulates a child's brain to grow and that reading to children gives them a huge advantage when they start school, we hope to encourage people of all ages to enjoy books and magazines and to share that pleasure with the young children in their lives.
So throughout May, be sure that you and your child Get Caught Reading, and check back here for more ideas and activities to promote literacy in your home.
