In parenting…reading plays a vital role in our children’s development…

To help EEW Magazine Online readers see the importance of literacy, here are tips to develop a child’s love of reading.

Make literacy a gift they’ll treasure. Few kids remember what toys they received or when, but many have special memories of the books they read as children. Whether you gift a book that’s a classic childhood favorite, a story that held special meaning for you or even a book dedicated to today’s popular characters, encouraging reading is a gift that can keep giving for a lifetime.

Do business where literacy is a priority. You can show your support for literacy by supporting organizations like Empowering Everyday Women that not only support the cause of literacy but also offer opportunities for the community to get involved. For example, Empowering Everyday Women provides direct access to books and educational resources to the nation’s most economically disadvantaged children. Thanks in part to community contributions, thousands of books have been given to children around the world, and free literacy training has been offered.
