Family Reading Time isn’t just for bedtime! Make memories with your children by reading stories from the Family Favorites series together. Children love to stop reading and guess what is going to happen next in the story. Why not make this a game? Pause the story and have each family member predict what they think will happen next. Not only is this fun, it allows your developing child to demonstrate comprehension of the story, and it aids them in learning how to think ahead and draw conclusions. Best of all, this educational fun time allows your family to bond in a new, exciting way!
