Looking for ways to beat the heat this summer? A great thing to do is get your children involved in reading! A new policy statement just came out by the American Academy of Pediatrics urging parents to read to children, starting in infancy. Reading not only promotes language, cognitive, and social development, but also strengthens parent-child bonding.

Check out The Milwaukee Public Library if you are looking for a great summer reading program.

Or the next time you are at Shoreview Pediatrics, stop by downstairs at Boswell Book Company to choose a new bedtime story and pick up their Where’s Waldo Passport to play and win prizes and store discounts.
