Reading is a Family Affair
The Oakland Public Library
 Summer Reading Program ...

Reading expert Stephen Krashen says: 
Children read more when they listen to and discuss books.
Reading skills grow by reading.
Reading helps improve children’s writing.
During the summer months:

Read to young children daily.
Read a chapter book to your school-age children by reading aloud one or two chapters every day.
Encourage your children to spend time reading and looking at books.
Talk with your children about what they are reading.
Ask your library about programs for children.
