Knowing how to read empowers kids to learn…. explore… discover…. and laugh! And riddles are just one way the printed word can multitask to help students make new connections, solve problems, exercise their ingenuity, and discover a whole new reason to love reading! So don’t be afraid to sprinkle your child’s reading list with books of jokes, word games or…. fishing. (Fishing?) They just might get “hooked” on it!
