Expert Commentary

“One of my favorite things about 6-year-olds is the amazing pace of growth in their reading abilities in this formative year. As a caregiver or parent, be prepared for your child’s ‘favorite’ book to shift every few weeks. Budget for multiple book purchases during this year to keep your child engaged.”
