Don’t panic as the winter break from school looms! We have a suggestion for a free, cozy and TV-free activity to blast the boredom and share quality time with your children. Read aloud! Even if your kids can read on their own, they will still enjoy listening to a great story. Hearing stories above their reading level can improve children’s vocabularies and their understanding of history, world events and other cultures. It will also let their imaginations soar.
