Hosneara Sheikh, Franchise Owner of Kiddie Academy of Stonebridge McKinney says," Research shows that shared book reading is linked to young children’s emergent literacy ability and language development, which affect children’s later success in reading. Beyond these early literacy skills, though, is the pleasure of spending quality time together, sharing a favorite story or discovering new favorites, like Pinkalicious® and Curious George. We hope you’ll join us for this special event."
