    Read, Read, Read

    Parents, the important thing for your child is to read, read, read and then read some more.  What they read is not as important as the fact that they should read.  Look for books that are in your child's interest.  If they like graphic books, we have a great selection of fiction and nonfiction books. Seeing you read is a great way to encourage your child to read.
