Why Reading is Important for your Child? We all know reading to our kids is a good thing—but are you familiar with the specific advantages your toddler or preschool-age child can receive by being exposed to the merits of reading? Below are some benefits that highlight the importance of reading to your child between the ages of two and five.
• A stronger relationship with you.  • Academic excellence. • Basic speech skills.
• The basics of how to read a book. • Better communication skills.  • Mastery of language.
• More logical thinking skills.  • Acclamation to new experiences.
• Enhanced concentration and discipline.  • The knowledge that reading is fun!
Books have the power to benefit toddlers and preschoolers in a myriad of ways. As a parent, reading to your child is one of the most important things you can do to prepare him with a foundation for academic excellence.
