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
