Read in front of your child. Children imitate everything you do. When they see you reading, they’ll know it is important. It doesn’t matter what you read; just pick up something you’re interested in: magazines, newspapers, novels, books for classes you’re taking, hobby books, or even the sports section, in honor of the TogetheREAD Sports and Fitness month. There is no greater gift you can give a child than a love of books and reading!
As the new school year begins, explore these books that present the joys, challenges, and mysteries of the world of school. Included are a range of schools pre-school to adult education, from traditional schools to homeschool. Of course, the students vary even more than the schools: young, older, deaf, physically challenged, talented, international, fearful, confident, and more! Which students remind you of yourself?
