Families Matter
Hosted by D’Jion Jackson and Rebecca Benton

On this month’s episode of Families Matter, D’Jion Jackson and Rebecca Benton talk about their favorite books from their childhood and their fond memories related to books. “Families, grab your popcorn! Families can listen to a Commissioner Book of the Month children’s bilingual book read aloud while engaging in family reading activities. Families will learn how to enroll their children in the New World’s Reading Initiative which provides FREE at-home book delivery for eligible students. Resources about public-school libraries and the local libraries will also be shared.”

This month they speak with their guest Wendy Munao, District Media Specialist. They explain how important the library is to everyone and how important it is to read. Reading helps parents and students connect to have a stronger relationship while reading. It also promotes literacy skills, new vocabulary, and increases academic performance. Wendy explains how a Media Specialist helps children at school. Media Specialists help students find the right book, on their reading level, and within their own type of interest. She also discusses how students can use their resources to help improve their reading/research projects. She points out that at a public library, ANY STUDENT AGES  5-15 WITH A PARENT’S SIGNATURE CAN HAVE A LIBRARY CARD. They have access to all the book and free access to all the resources with the computers.
