Get your children interested in reading with Scholar's Choice Storytime
Children of all ages benefit from reading, whether this is independent reading, group reading, or listening to someone else read.
From a young age, the more words that children are exposed to directly impact a child's development in language and literacy. Children's books are designed to grab a child's attention. The illustrations, the way the book is written, the colours, and the storyline.
Here are 5 Scholar's Choice Storytime videos that your child will love, and will help inspire you when you create your children their very own reading list.
