In EDUC 8P30, we have discussed how important it is for children to begin to read at a very early age. This allows them to be exposed to reading comprehension, vocabulary, etc. at an early age. My parents always read to my brother and I since we were infants, and when I learned to read, I began reading to my brother as well. As a future educator, I want to encourage my students' parents to be involved in their lives, and assist in educating their children in this regard.
