The simple act of reading together 20 minutes every day has a lasting positive effect on a child's life.
When you read together for 20 minutes every day, you will see your child’s knowledge and skills grow!
Our national Read With a Child campaign reminds parents and caregivers 20 minutes of reading with a child are the most important ones of each day. Reading with a child every day nurtures vocabulary, language, and early literacy skills. It also builds the child's confidence to work through challenges and persistence in difficult tasks, and develops social and emotional skills, which are just as essential to school success.
