Storytellers: The Important of Reading

Reading with your children and encouraging them to read on their own is incredibly important for many reasons. The most obvious benefit from reading is the enhancement of your child’s speech and language skills. As your child is beginning to learn the ins and outs of English, reading will help them get accustomed to proper grammar and word usage. Additionally, having your child read a book that they already know well, from having it read to them, will help create an association between the words they already know and how they look on paper. Aside from the linguistic benefits, reading also allows your child to become accustomed to things they don’t experience every day.  Reading helps children learn how to adapt to new experiences. This may be through reading books about other cultures or different time periods. Imaginative and thought-provoking books also help kick start your child’s creativity and logical thinking skills from a young age.
