National Family Literacy Month

A book is a gift you can open again and again.

Garrison Keillor

November is National Family Literacy Month and of course at Madison Miles & Friends, we love anything that encourages reading. For many young masterminds, your love of reading first came from your families. Whether that be from what they read to you before you could even read or the books they recommended once you developed that skill on your own. 

Here’s a few tips on how to best celebrate National Family Literacy Month:

  1. Read the book version of your favorite movie. It’s true what they say–the book is always better than the movie. 
  2. Set some time aside each day for reading. Sometimes, life can get crazy. It’s good to have time that you already know you’re going to spend doing something you love. 
  3. Start a book club. The best way to further your love of reading is to become acquainted with other people who love it just as much! You guys can pass recommendations and hold each other accountable! You can even get your family in on it!
