Available in English and Spanish, “Make Time for Reading” is a valuable tool for children and the people who care for them. This lovely picturebook is two books in one; the simple rhyming story entertains, while science-based facts are provided to the parent/caregiver on the value of direct verbal interaction with their young child. Inspired by the true life story of author, publisher
and early childhood development specialist Dr. Jean Fahey, “Make Time for Reading” is in its fourth printing. Several philanthropic organizations have sponsored branded printings, and then distributed their versions through birthing hospitals and other child-centered organizations. A few of the illustrations and the cover are featured on this page. To purchase the book, or for more information, please follow the given link. Thank you!
