Develop Your Children’s Language Skills

I do not know how many books we have here in the house but tell you, we have tons of it, from children’s books to World War II history books.  Hubby and I love to read and I am glad that we have influenced our daughter. RJ loves books and reads a lot. She started to read and spell simple words at the age of three and now that she is eight years old, she is already a very good reader. She can even write stories and poems.

Reading is a very important skill so as parents, we should encourage our children to read. Why not shut off your television and computer for at least 30 minutes and have a family reading to help your children develop their language skills?
