As a parent to 3 young girls I know the value of reading to them and still find myself struggling to make time. Some days it is easy but most are HARD! I was really good at it with my first daughter but have gotten worse over time. How many of you experience this?
Well today is our day to change. Today, I am making a pledge to be better and try harder to make sure that I set time aside each day to read to my children. Who’s with me!?

Jena Passut interviews LaVar Burton, the former host of the PBS show Reading Rainbow. Check it out here!
I love this quote from the article, “she always had at least two or three books going for her own personal enjoyment. I always saw my mother reading. I got the example from my mother that reading is an important part of the human experience”
This is something that I struggle with as a parent. I read all the time at work or while I am traveling for work but not much at all while I am home. If I am, I am reading articles and things on my phone. Literacy is crucial to the development of our children and I respect how Mr. Burton sees the value that digital devices can play.
