While Summer break means some welcome time away from homework and school assignments, it shouldn't mean shelving your kids' interest in reading for the season. For advice on the best ways to keep little ones reading (and some great book recommendations for kids of all ages), we turned to children's librarian Maggie Maloney of Smithtown Library in Long Island, NY. Heed Maggie's advice, and you just may find your kids picking up books entirely on their own this Summer.
"Sharing a book with your child is the greatest gift a parent or caregiver can give to their little one," says children's librarian Maggie Maloney of Long Island, New York's Smithtown Library. We couldn't agree more! When Maggie offered to share her advice for getting the most out of reading with your lil ones (at any age), we jumped at the opportunity. Check out her words of wisdom (and favorite kids' books), and get reading!
