The Nurturing Nest
Family Child Care and Preschool
April 2022 Reading





The following books complement topics and concepts that I will be introducing this month. Choose some books to use with your child at home. Read the books frequently to your child to encourage literacy skills. Reading to children at a young age will encourage them to become good readers themselves later on. Remember, a positive attitude toward reading is contagious!
