About It’s Reading Time
It’s Reading Time! This channel was created by my wife and I who is an elementary school teacher and I am a music producer/ music teacher. As of March 2019, we are family of 6 and we have 3 children under the age of 2! I know, right…….We also have a 10 year old son named CJ. As you can imagine, they love being read to. After realizing that this channel could potentially help millions of other kids learn how to read, we decided to do more research to take this channel to the next level with your help. We post stories every Monday. Also, to all of our parents: Each of the bedtime stories that we post do not and will not contain our normal intro/outro music, so that you can put your kids to bed peacefully. There is a playlist for the bedtime stories as well. We use this playlist every night for our girls. Our goal for this channel is to have at least 1,000 subscribers. Please help us in making that happen by clicking the subscribe button. Thank you!
