I used to go to the library, check out the maximum number of books allowed, and read at least two or more books a day. If some books were too wordy, I changed them to make them more age appropriate.
As children get older, you can get books from different subjects like science and biographies of famous people in our country’s history. That’s a sure way to increase their participation in school discussions around our president’s holidays. Biographies are also a wonderful way to reinforce how hard work and perseverance lead to great accomplishments.
