15 minute solution
What would it be like if every child received a wonderful, holiday story for a present and a favourite adult to actually sit down and share it with them? Multiply that for 365 days of a year....one book daily....one adult to share it with....365 days....one book....one adult to share it with (you get the idea) and what do you have? A balanced, smart, vocabulary-rich, imaginative child. The 15 minute a day solution can change your child into a lifelong, successful reader. Simple, satisfying, successful. Crack open a book today and share reading with your child in front of a crackling fire. Discuss and converse the elements in the story. Make connections to your life, your values, your dreams. The perfect New Year's resolution. Being read to from the heart = love.
