As parents, we want to raise confident readers, but between commercials for teaching our babies to read and the large sections of flash cards and workbooks at the store, the whole prospect of how to accomplish it can be stressful. But it doesn’t have to be. In fact, it may be easier than we think. Here are 10 workbook-free ways you can raise a more confident reader!
Take the pledge to Give Books this holiday. It’s simple, and free. For every #GiveBooks tweet, pin, and online signature we gather, Chronicle will donate a children’s book to First Book. We’ll donate every time someone purchases a children’s book from one of our three retail stores in San Francisco. If you want to contribute more, you can also make a direct donation to FirstBook.org or the literacy non-profit of your choice. But most important, buy a book this holiday—any book—and give it to someone you love.
