This is a trying time for our communities, our nation, and the world. It is in such times of anxiety when children most need to feel safe and loved. One of the best ways to support and engage children is to read books together. Reading together promotes bonding and builds strong emotional connections. When children are cuddled in the lap of a loving caregiver, enjoying a book together, they feel secure. Reading together also builds routines that can help children manage during this uneasy time. Sharing books regularly can provide a sense of routine as many schools close and childcare schedules change, and families spend more time at home.
