I have the joy of reading to our east building students each Friday and love to see the excitement and joy in the lives of our youngest students.  We do a lot of reading at school and I encourage you as parents to read to/with your children as well.  Reading to children at home helps in so many ways! It gives families extra opportunity to bond, helps students develop good comprehension and listening skills, and places priority on reading.  Try a detailed Bible story book and grow in knowledge and faith!
