March is National Reading Month!

Reading to children benefits their cognitive and vocabulary development, as well as their critical thinking skills and abilities. It’s also fun! Reading can:

  • Set up children for success in school and beyond
  • Empower children to explore limitless worlds through the pages of books
  • Unlock doors to knowledge, imagination and opportunities

That is why this National Reading Month, we are sharing resources from long-time early childhood literacy champion United Way of San Diego County (UWSD).
