This week Dr. Rura led the group in a discussion on reading and talking to children. We considered some of the guidelines set out by the National Early Childhood Education Association and read through an discussed some frequently asked questions about how and why talking and reading with children is done. There was an overwhelming agreement that it should be done but less certainty that it was happening. Carol Gentry shared some personal experience about reading and reading in her family. The door prizes this week were again children’s books. Thanks to all the cooks that brought food to the pot luck.
