Reading aloud to young children is not only one of the best activities to stimulate language and cognitive skills; it also builds motivation, curiosity, and memory. (Bardige, 2009)
Since February is I Love to Read Month, we're sharing our FREE storybooks for children and their families on common childhood illnesses. These books (and our other parent tools) were designed to empower parents and families with evidence-based health information to help them care for their sick children at home, and to aid them in understanding when to seek emergency care.
