The Reading With Your Kids Podcast Proudly Presents

Reading Matters!!!

In this totally interactive school assembly program students will meet Jedlie, an award winning Children’s Author and the host of the Reading With Your Kids Podcast, the iTunes #1 Kids & Family Podcast. Jedlie is also a former social worker who has been inspiring students on stage throughout the US and Puerto Rico since 1983. In this all new show Jedlie uses storytelling, comedy, magic, and illusion to teach students the benefits of reading aloud, to themselves and others, and to visualize the text they are reading. Numerous studies have shown that these strategies:

  • Improves Emotional Intelligence
  • Increases Empathy
  • Sharpens Focus
  • Increases Vocabulary
  • Improves Comprehension

During the show, Jedlie will challenge students to read aloud with another at least 20 minutes each day. He will also reveal how books have made a difference in his life. “Books” he explains “have helped me to travel back in time to discover what life was like for my great grandparents.” He will share how his family hosts international students in his home, and how books have helped him travel to different parts of the World, to learn more about the cultures these students come from. And of course, books have helped him discover the secrets to performing amazing magic tricks!!!”

“Jedlie’s performance brought kids to the library on a beautiful Summer day and got them excited about books.”
