The August cover for Little Rock Family Magazine is all about reading. And the importance of reading.
For this months cover feature, I traveled just a bit to a private home in Saline County to photograph some really, cutie-pie kids doing what every mother loves to see them do….reading.
Below is an excerpt from this months feature,
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that you begin reading to your child no later than six months. The Academy conveys research showing reading aloud not only helps children learn to love books, but helps them express themselves verbally and develop socially, emotionally and physically. It promotes brain and intellectual development as well as vital literacy skills. These skills are critical in school and in life.

Now go get the kids off the couch, turn off the TV, unplug the video game and get outside and read!
