Did You Know?
Reading regularly with young children stimulates optimal patterns of brain development and strengthens parent-child relationships at a critical time in child development, which, in
turn, builds language, literacy,
and social-emotional skills
that last a lifetime.
– American Academy of Pediatrics
Studies have also shown that children who were read to as newborns have a larger vocabulary, as well as more advanced mathematical skills, than
other kids their age.
