Disclosure

I received a set of books for my 7 year old in return for running this giveaway 🙂

Since March is Reading Month, McDonald’s has given us 4 sets of books to give to our readers!! McDonald’s originally offered these books as the toy in Happy Meals, providing more than 17 million books to families across the U.S. Through a new collaboration with HarperCollins Children’s Books, families were able to enjoy a collection of four classic, Happy Meal-sized books: “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie,” “Big Nate: In a Class by Himself” (abridged), “Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses” and “Flat Stanley Goes Camping.” Each book, which also has a related activity element, brings imagination and play to life in a way that only McDonald’s can. McDonald’s provided us with three of the four books to give to our readers, promoting READING MONTH!!

Reading daily, to or with your child can make a difference!

Consider the following example:

Student “A” reads 20 minutes every day – that’s 3,600 minutes in a school year or the equivalent of 60 whole school days by the end of 6th grade; approximately 1,800,000 words. 

Student “B” reads 5 minutes every day – that’s 900 minutes in a school year or the equivalent of 12 whole school days by the end of 6th grade; approximately 282,000 words. 

Student “C” reads 1 minute every day – that’s 180 minutes a school year or only one-half of 1 day; approximately 8,000 words.

Which student would you expect to have a better vocabulary?  

Student “A” will likely score in the 90th percentile on reading and language assessments, while Student “B” will likely be at the 50th percentile, and Student “C” at the 10th percentile.  

Which student would you expect to be more successful in school…and in life? 

Encourage your child to read, or if they are too young to read, sit down and read to them.  It is one of the best things you can do at home to help them become successful students and adults.  For as little as 20 minutes a day – you can be the difference!
