Layne Ihde, Author

One of the most important things parents can do, beyond keeping kids healthy and safe, is to read with them. That means starting when they are newborns and not even able to talk, and continuing well beyond the years that they can read by themselves. Study after study shows that early reading with children helps them learn to speak, interact, bond with parents and read early themselves, and reading with kids who already know how to read helps them feel close to caretakers, understand the world around them and be empathetic citizens of the world.

Today we had local author Layne Ihde read his new book, Pippin No Lickin' and offered autographed copies to our families. In addition to being an author, Layne is also a musician and played his guitar and got us moving for Fitness Fanatics month. Thanks so much for visiting, Layne!
