Parents' Toolkit


There’s much talk about the importance of literacy, and rightly so. Reading and writing are essential skills that no one should be without. But being able to read is not enough.

There’s a big difference between knowing how to read and becoming a reader. This toolkit for parents is designed to help your children make that leap. When kids are instilled with a love of reading, they make it a lifelong habit.

The National Reading Campaign has compiled a variety of resources available to parents that act as a toolkit for instilling the love for reading with their children.
