Most parents want to give their children an edge on their education and in their life in general- is reading to children something that will make an actual difference for them?
Many studies have shown that reading to children in their early years facilitates their learning in school and advances their reading comprehension once they start reading on their own.
Besides helping children with their understanding of what they read, reading to them also stimulates them to enjoy and desire reading on their own, instead of simply because it is required at school. To stimulate this, It is best if your child participates in the selection of the books that you read to them. Bring them to the library with you so that they can freely choose which books they want to have read to them.
We know that it can feel a bit of a chore to read to your child every day, but in the long run, you will be thankful that you did.
