Washington School Helps Parents Read With Kids

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Kids read at school, but are they reading at home? There's a new effort to help get parents and kids on the same page.

A retired Washington Elementary teacher taught parents how to get their kids excited about reading. Families could sign up for Quincy Public Library cards, made reading journals and picked out a book to take home with them.

Principal Sara Cramer hopes this will create lifetime readers.

Parent Theresa Owens says it's important for families to learn together.

"They like to read because Mom and Dad, we both get involved with it," Owens said.
