Attention all BOOK WORMS! Do you remember a story you were told as a child? A favorite book read to you? The first book you couldn’t put down? The two we remember are “The Little House” by Virginia Lee Burton and “Harry the Dirty Dog” by Zion Gene. We at Color Me SAFE want to encourage children to read. We also want to encourage parents to read to their children because there are so many emotional and educational benefits to children who are read to!
Children who read often and widely get better at it, exercises their brain, improves concentration, teaches children about the world around them, improves vocabulary and language skills, develops a child’s imagination, helps children to develop empathy, creates a strong bond between children and parents, and it’s FUN!
We are EXCITED to introduce Gau Go Story Time with Color me SAFE to encourage children to read and to be read to! Keep an eye out for new episodes!
