March is National Reading Month and Raising Cane’s is doing something fun to get parents to read to their keiki. Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, 102.7 Da Bomb and HI 93.1 FM are partnering for a second year in a row with Read To Me International Foundation to encourage Hawaii parents to read aloud with their keiki every day. As part of National Reading Month, Raising Cane’s is offering a place for parents to celebrate, gather and connect with their keiki by reading aloud. Read To Me International has served Hawaii’s families for over 25 years! Its mission is to share the love and joy of reading aloud. When parents read aloud to their children, even when their children can’t yet read, it’s building an early foundation of building vocabulary, active listening, and observation skills. Studies show how important it is to read aloud to your children, even if it’s just for ten minutes a day. By reading aloud to or with your children, you are helping them to build their vocabulary, expand their imagination, increase their knowledge of different subjects, and spending quality time together.
The reading events will occur each Sunday on Oahu from 2-4 p.m.
