We all want our children to read on a daily basis and try to encourage them with high interest books and taking them to the library, but did you know that reading to our children during bedtime is also a very effective practice?

As parents, establish a bedtime routine that you and your children will love. This special time can establish healthy sleeping habits and help children retain more of what they learn in school.

You can read to your child in any language!
