When parents read to their children, it can have a positive impact on both the children and the parents themselves. Children will show improvements in social-emotional skills, interest in reading, and will improve their quality of life. Parents will experience better attitudes toward reading, improved relationship with their children and improving partnering skills.

We know from life experience that babies and young children are sponges that soak in practically everything in their environments. It’s true! Even during story time, their minds are at work, taking in all the language they hear and lessons the characters learn.

Reading to your child — at any age — will boost their brain development, your bond, and so much more. And all it takes is a few books, motivation, and a little time.
