The Enchanted Hour: The Power of Reading Aloud
November 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
“A miraculous alchemy occurs when one person reads to another, transforming the simple stuff of a book, a voice, and a bit of time into complex and powerful fuel for the heart, brain, and Imagination”
– Meghan Cox Gurdon
As a devoted advocate of building the foundations of literacy in even the youngest children through a language-rich environment, The Children’s School invites you to attend, The Enchanted Hour: The Power of Reading Aloud on November 20 at 7 pm.
What’s the secret to raising children who are smarter, happier, healthier, and more closely attached? One answer, according to Meghan Cox Gurdon–and a wealth of scientific research–is a family habit of reading aloud. This ancient practice engages the heart and mind in complex narratives, serving as a fast-working antidote to fractured attention spans. Gurdon, as a mother of five and the Wall Street Journal’s reviewer for children’s literature, has practical tips and reading recommendations that will inspire parents to share in this life-altering tradition with their children. We hope you will join us at the school, 118 Scofieldtown Road in Stamford, for an engaging presentation followed by Q&A and discussion. Please RSVP (203) 329-8815 for this free event.
