Literacy Tip of the Month

Bookless Wonders

Did you know that there are wonderful ways to help a child learn to read—without using books?

Summer Break is a great time to give them a try!

Summer Break usually involves travel–sometimes across the country, and sometimes just across town.  Adventures near and far, and time spent traveling by plane or car, can add up to wonderful opportunities for enriching your children’s literacy experience–all without opening a book!

Please click below for a listing of “Bookless Wonders”–and happy traveling!
