Marti and Tim McNiff Discuss Helping Children Develop a Love for Reading

Yet a large portion of children in our Minnesota communities are failing to develop the literacy skills they will need to succeed.
Child development expert Marti Erickson appeared on KARE 11 Sunrise Thursday morning to discuss what parents can do to ensure that our children become competent and enthusiastic readers.
