Likes: My favorite color is green and I love to eat grilled broccoli and cheese sandwiches. Actually, I love broccoli with everything. My best friend is the robin who hangs out in my backyard and I love all subjects especially Reading.

Dislikes: I do not like the NEVC (No Eating Vegetable Club) because they do not eat their vegetables. The color pink looks like vomit and it makes me sad when Papa forgets Mr. Doodlebug. I especially do not like Maria Diarrhea because she smells like…….well, you just have to find out for yourself.

Children are like sponges and therefore they are able to retain information at great levels.  Their brain is able to absorb anything that is presented to them.  If they listen to inappropriate music, then their brain will memorize every word.  If they watch violence on television, then their brain will remember the images.  If they read a book, then their brain will absorb the vocabulary and creativity.

What sort of information do you want your child to retain?

Each time your child picks up a book to read, they are introduced to new vocabulary words, creativity and overall knowledge expansion.  I’ve discovered that reading builds character and character opens the door to more creativity. We must change the mindset of our children at any early age by incorporating reading into their daily regimen. It’s never too early to start building a stable foundation of reading for your child.

Society fails to address many educational issues, leaving families very vulnerable.

Issue #1: One major issue in our educational system is illiteracy and lack of reading.  Many children are reluctant to read because they either struggle decoding words or they find that the material is boring.  Parents need to build reading into their child’s daily regimen.   Start off by encouraging your child to read at least 15 minutes per day.  Overtime, increase it to an hour per day.  Before you know it, your child will be reading one book per week.

Tip #1: Make sure to purchase high interest, educational, humorous and inspiring literature that encourages your child to turn off the television and pick up a book.
