Read 15 Minutes is a non profit organization that is striving to make reading aloud 15 minutes a day to every child 0 to 8 years old, the new standard of child care and parenting.
Why should you read aloud?
Read to your child 15 minutes a day from birth to:
Grow vocabulary and knowledge
Bond with your child
Foster a love of books and learning
Entertain and enlighten
Go to school better prepared
And it is virtually free with a library card!
Light up your child’s brain.
You are your child’s first and most important teacher. Babies learn best through interactions. There is no substitute for you.
Dr. John S. Hutton, pediatrician at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, author of Sleep Baby Safe and Snug, and children’s bookstore owner has partnered with Read aloud 15 Minutes adding his knowledge, expertise, passion and voice to spread the urgent message.
