Young Readers Day

Young Reader’s Day is on the first Tuesday of every November. It is a day that celebrates caregivers who encourage children to read. Reading to preschoolers has been shown to develop literacy skills, vocabulary, stimulate imagination, and improve cognitive skills. The following books have been recommended by our teachers:
