The Adventures Of Scuba Jack,
The Lonely Lobster
The story of the Lonely Lobster is the heartwarming tale of an unlikely friendship between two crustaceans: a lobster and a crab. The two are thrust together during a storm and became the best of friends despite the fact that lobsters like to dine on crabs. This surprising bond between predator and prey will leave you wondering, “Why can’t we all just get along?”
the importance of reading
The frequency of reading to children at a young age has a direct causal effect on their schooling outcomes regardless of their family background and home environment.
- Reading to children at age 4-5 every day has a significant positive effect on their reading skills and cognitive skills (i.e., language and literacy, numeracy and cognition) later in life.
- Reading to children 3-5 days per week (compared to 2 or less) has the same effect on the child’s reading skills at age 4-5 as being six months older.
- Reading to them 6-7 days per week has the same effect as being almost 12 months older.
- Children read to more frequently at age 4-5 achieve higher scores on the National Assessment Program.
