This message brought to you by Wadadli Pen, big fans of reading as well as writing. Begin by reading with your kids, have reading time in school, buy books as presents, join the library with your kids, let your kids see you reading, discuss what you read with your kids, watch movies about books you’ve read and explore the differences with your kids, encourage your kid to read. In order to read and interpret material related to other subjects and to simply navigate life, you need to know how to read. So, read.
