A Family That Reads Together….

Saturday, June 6, 2009.

There’s a lot of talk about the benefits of reading aloud to children. But it’s usually focused on the benefits to the children!

We’d love to hear how reading has benefited your family. Leave us a comment below or, better yet, leave us a voice message on our JOMB listener hotline, +1-206-350-6487, so we can include your audio in our show.

Happy Reading!
