May is Scholastic National Family Reading Month!

Admin —

2022 marks the 26th year of National Family Reading Month which celebrates and encourages families to read more together.

Most of us know how important reading together is and its long-term value to our children’s success in school and in life. However, we also know it is not always that easy to put into practice with our busy schedules and increasing competition with screen time.

That is why we ask families to take the 31 Day Family Reading Challenge–to inspire you to make reading together for at least 10 minutes every day a focus, to create positive, long lasting reading habits and lifelong readers!

We hope you enjoy exploring the universe of wonderful stories there are together–from different types of books across many authors and genres, and have a great time taking this challenge!
