5. Another resource to promote family literacy and to help children continue to share and read books is this site,  Storyline Online.
This is an award-winning children’s literacy site that features a wide variety of stories for children of all ages. This is available to children and families all around the world. This site streams videos of celebrities and children reading stories individually and together.
According to Michigan State University Extension, reading aloud is one easy way for family members and friends to help children build and improve their reading skills. It also helps children improve their writing and communication skills, logical thinking and concentration, academic skills, and to develop a lifelong love of reading.
Use this site to enhance your time spent with your children, reading and listening to stories together. This will add to the ‘gift of reading’ and memories you and your child can build together as they learn books can be fun and exciting.
This can lead you and your child to select books from their own personal collection of books / their own library to read aloud together.
