Greg Helwig, president of Kiddie Academy Educational Child Care, states, "Research shows that shared book reading is linked to young children's emergent literacy ability and language development, which affect children's later success in reading. We believe that Storytime LIVE! gives families the opportunity to spend quality time together while also laying the groundwork for children's lifelong passion for books."
