Reading to your Child has Benefits set out for a Lifetime
Reading to your child has so many benefits that they will carry through with them throughout their lives. Reading to your child regularly has been scientifically proven to be beneficial to them for their future growth, their understanding and interacting with the world around them, especially between the crucial years of the age 1 to 3 years old.
Research has shown that when toddlers are read to often their transition into independent reading and writing is managed better. Reading to your little one will help them develop essential reading skills, from turning a page to read from left to right and identifying the form and spelling of their own name. It is beneficial to developing key reading skills that will help them with the basics of communicating in the English language.
Reading to your toddler helps expand their vocabulary and improve their language skills. Hearing words regularly and the correct pronunciation will strengthen their ability to understand, communicate and read and write independently later on in their development.
No matter what your child wishes to do in their future, solid communication skills are always needed and good written and spoken English help them on their path to success.
Children are naturally curious and love to learn about the world around them. By reading a few pages to your little one each night, you can help them to develop and strengthen their understanding of the world around them. The foundation of language skills is built in the early childhood years of life. Help your little one along the way by reading a story to them every night. They will love it!
Until next time,
