As you may already know, reading to a young child build’s his or her vocabulary and prepares them for school success. Also, having a variety of books for on hand for young children, creates a love for reading and enhances a child’s imagination.
Moreover, this is why it is so important that you inspire parents to build a library at home for their children.
One way that you can do this is by subscribing to Scholastic book and send the book order forms home (once a month) with your parents, so that they can order books for their child(ren) at an affordable rate. Also, sharing literacy articles with parents (on a weekly basis) is a great way to inspire parents to read to their children.
I’ve been receiving Scholastic book orders since 2003 and I have built a very large collection of books in my childcare center, just from receiving free books from parent scholastic book orders. Moreover, the parents at my center love to order books for their kids and my hope is that they are building a library at home for their children.
You may already be a subscriber of scholastic book, however, I want you to know that you are in a position to inspire parents to start a library in their home(s) for their young child(ren).
