Happy National Family Literacy Day!

Happy National Family Literacy Day! On every November 1 since 1994, libraries and community centers across the country have celebrated this special day, and for a very good reason.

In a survey of 2,148 adults and children aged 6–171, researchers found that having reading role models or a large book collection at home has a greater impact on kids’ reading frequency than does household income. Long story short? A love of reading is contagious. Bring that love into your home and it will spread.

With the holiday season just around the corner, this is the perfect time to cozy up and share favorite stories. In case you need some suggestions, here are some of the stories we’ll be enjoying with our families this winter:
