Barbara Bush Foundation  Our mission is to advocate for and establish #literacy as a value in every home. #AmericasBiggestChallenge

When you make books the topic of conversation, you’ll show the young members of your family that people of all ages love to read for pleasure. Who knows? You may even inspire a family member to pick up a book for the first time in years! .

Help improve your grandchild’s reading and writing abilities by sending them a letter in the mail, and starting a correspondence! Children love the surprise of opening mail, and they’ll be even happier to tell you about their day. #FamilyLiteracyMonth

Be a hero at next week’s Thanksgiving get-together, and bring a festive #childrensbook to read aloud to all of your family’s youngsters. Not only will you be entertaining them, you’ll also be creating a positive association between family, reading, and books!

Our founder, Barbara Bush, loved to invite her grandchildren and great-grandchildren to read in bed with her as a morning routine. Children love feeling cozy, and nothing’s cozier than holding a child in your arms or on your lap, and reading a book together! #FamilyLiteracyMonth .

Life naturally teaches us new things all the time—but we can further enrich that education by taking the time to read books. If it’s been a while since you’ve read a book from cover-to-cover, try coming up with a few ideas for what types of books you’re looking for, and ask your local librarian for recommendations! .

The sooner that adults planning on becoming parents equip themselves with literacy skills, the better. Set your family up for success by starting at the top—when parents improve their literacy skills, their whole family reaps the benefits! #FamilyLiteracyMonth .

History’s greatest writers were influenced by what they read! Take a cue from author Robert Louis Stevenson, born on this day in 1850, and keep a small journal around while you read. You never know what ideas you might come up with for your own short story or novel! . .

#FamilyLiteracyMonth isn’t just about children’s literacy or adult literacy; it’s about the special bond between parents and children, and how the adult’s reading ability and passion for books positively impacts the child’s future. That’s family literacy in a nutshell!

On this special #VeteransDay marking 100 years since the end of World War I, we’d like to thank all who have served, and all who will continue to serve our nation’s Armed Forces.

Tomorrow is the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, the formal end of World War I. Many things have changed since 1918, but our debt to veterans is not one of them. We hope you join us in honoring our veterans tomorrow, and always.

Barbara Bush Reading Tip: Establish a Routine for Reading Aloud
.
Reading aloud to children is more than 'just fun,' it helps them pay attention longer, think better, and communicate more effectively. Best of all, when you make reading aloud a daily routine, you make reading a habit–one of the best your child can have! #FamilyLiteracyMonth #FBF
