Aside from the fun and frolic of “The Reading Pig Goes to School” remains the importance of teaching and influencing our young children to read. It is a life-long skill that they should be exposed to early in life. Too soon, they will become distracted by the seemingly never ending parade of bigger and better digital devices. Support Reed Daly – The Reading Pig in encouraging children to read regularly.

Love of Reading Month – Each year, February is commonly recognized as Love of Reading Month. Our schools nationwide ramp up their emphasis on reading with activities and guest readers in support of literacy.

Love of Reading

Not to be outdone, Reed Daly is also a big supporter of this literacy initiative. In February, he is asking schools, parent groups and municipalities everywhere to share in the Love of Reading Month proclamation.
