“I play many roles - parent, actor, advocate for literacy – but my most important role is reading to my child," reports Sean. "This is why I am the National Center for Family Literacy’s Verizon Literacy Champion. My role is to encourage parents to create good reading habits in their home - model how to enjoy good books, read with their children and make reading a fun activity."
