“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” – Dr. Suess
Dr. Seuss says it the best, the more kids read the better off they will be. But raising a child who loves to read is quite a challenge in this modern day electronic world. With options like playing the most recent gaming system and watching TV, books are getting left on the shelf to collect dust.
Here at JM Cremp’s, we know how important reading is for kids of all ages, and we have a great way to encourage reading at home – Family Reading Time. It’s simple to implement and the rewards are worth the effort. For 30 minutes every day turn off all electronics, gather everyone in the family room and just read. This quiet reading time is a great way to chill out after a long day at school or to wind-down in the evening before bedtime. Either way, we guarantee before long the kids will be looking forward to family reading time and the closeness it brings to your family.
JM Cremp’s has a huge selection of good books for boys, and families alike.
