Why it’s important to read aloud to young children!

According to the Family Literacy Foundation, reading aloud to young children serves several crucial functions:

“Studies prove that the most important thing adults can do in preparing young children for success in school and reading is to read aloud with them.

Many doctors believe that a child that has never had the experience of being read to is not a fully healthy child.  The American Medical Association has suggested that all doctors prescribe “reading to children.”

Reading aloud with children regularly is an extremely effective medium to build relationships and communicate with children.”
