Reading aloud is widely recognized as the single most important activity leading to language development. Among other things, reading aloud builds word-sound awareness in children, a potent predictor of reading success.
Success By 6® knows the importance of this and now offers a community reading night the first Thursday of every month at the Wesley House located 411 E. 12th St in Pittsburg, KS.
Community leaders volunteer to read aloud to the children in attendance. Each child can then pick out a brand new book to take home to build their very own home library and have the adult in their life continue to read aloud to them.
