Where the World Gathers to Celebrate Every Day

NATIONAL YOUNG READERS WEEK – Second Week in November

National Young Readers Week - Second Week in November

NATIONAL YOUNG READERS WEEK

National Young Readers Week challenges literacy to grow throughout schools everywhere. Grab a book in the second week of November and get reading!

Reading supports language and literacy skills. The earlier parents read aloud to their children, the more it strengthens their brain development, too. Reading empowers. It allows children to explore, learn and answer all those nagging little questions.

This week promotes improving literacy for children of all ages. The week demonstrates to youth the importance of reading. It also promotes a variety of media to choose from. Some children prefer reading magazines to books. Let them read! Bring newspapers into the home and read the latest community knows and discuss how it impacts them. Leave a variety of books around the house and encourage your young readers.

Let them catch you reading, too! The benefits of literacy carry with us all through our lives. Share the skill that can’t be unlearned.

HOW TO OBSERVE #YoungReadersWeek

Schools across the country invite guess readers to join their classrooms. They’ll read and inspire children with tales, history, and more. Principals also take up the banner and read to their students just about anywhere in the school all day long as part of the Principal’s Challenge.

Register your school and your event.
