In this age that offers an explosion of technology reading skills is still one sound way to help children to succeed in school. Too often parents set children in front of a television or computer when they have not learned some of the essential reading skills. Once students obtain a joy of reading they are like a sponge absorbing all of the knowledge that they can. It time to dust of the books in your home and share them with children who have no books in their homes. Every home should have hundreds of books for children to enjoy. Some children will go back and read a book four or five times. The school administrators, teachers and school counselors can share books from their homes. How can you contribute to this effort?
