Why Reading Aloud to Kids Helps Them Thrive

"The secret for summertime media use, as with many other things in life, is balance." One dad of three shares his strategy for preventing summer "brain drain."

Being brave is hard, but it’s also empowering! As you browse these books, chat with your child about each character's fears and how they conquered them!
