Reading with a child

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.

Reading aloud is practically free, you can do it anywhere. 

Even adults who are not fluent readers can provide a good experience for children by telling stories from their lives, from their imaginations, or from pictures in wordless books.


Reading aloud with children is linked to these powerful results:

  • Expanded knowledge and vocabulary

  • Improved attention span and memory

  • Increased curiosity and imagination


Plus . . .

  • Greater self-esteem, empathy and confidence

  • Stronger, closer relationships

  • Higher educational achievement and quality of life
