Parent's Newspaper Guide
You are your child's first and most important teacher. You play a vital role in developing your child's attitude about learning and success in reading and thinking skills.
Children learn best when parents are interested and involved in their education. Many parents have found that looking through and reading the newspaper is an easy, enjoyable way to read, talk and think together with their children. Seeing a parent read the newspaper every day motivates a child to want to do the same - read and learn.
The newspaper is both an inexpensive and rich source of information you can share with your child.
