importance of reading to a child

Reading to children

For preschoolers,  quality times of reading, art, and interaction can give children more than the classroom can. Reading picture books to children stimulates their imagination and helps with bonding and habits. It is a great way for children to develop a love for reading earlier in life. More importantly, language and listening skills are sharpened when they follow the reader and the pictures in the book. When reading becomes a bedtime activity, children look forward to it and often take the lead to bed to ensure that it happens.

Children who read

When children begin to read, they are often excited about their abilities and want to read more. They must have access to books that they can read, and understand, and perhaps re-tell the story. Picture books help, and character books are even better because they become familiar with the character’s personality, environment, language, and moods. In some cases they see themselves as the character. It is a great time to invest time and help them to take off!
