Will Your Kids
Read Today?

Simply put, reading reaps rewards and plenty of them. Solid reading skills are crucial to optimum school success. Just 20 minutes of reading a day can prevent a child from losing literacy skills over the summer break.

Mesquite ISD’s Let’s Read Together! YouTube video is a popular resource. It gives tips on how to help a child grow in a love for reading.

As a lifelong reader myself, I urge you to find books of interest to your child, regardless of age. We know that even small babies can enjoy books, but keep promoting reading for pleasure to your elementary and secondary age students, too. Remember, proficiency in reading is crucial to a young person’s future.

So what will your kids read today?
