BOISE, Idaho — Read With a Child Week kicks off on Monday and is recognized annually by The Children's Reading Foundation.

The week is a reminder about how important it is for parents and caregivers to read with their children at least 20 minutes a day.

Experts say incorporating reading into a daily routine nurtures a young child's early vocabulary, language, literacy and social-emotional skills.
