To, With, and By

In honor of Read Across America and Dr. Seuss's birthday this week, we'd like to share with you the To, With, and By concept.

As your child becomes an independent reader, don't forget to continue reading aloud to your child. When you head to the library for more books for your voracious bibliophile, consider sorting your books into three categories:

  • A book to read TO your child
  • A book to read WITH your child
  • A book for your child to read BY themselves

You'll be reinforcing the idea that reading is a fun activity for the whole family, a way for you to bond together, and a quiet activity when your child needs alone time.
