Reading to children out loud is a key to their learning comprehension and enjoyment.
Accordingly, children will learn language, vocabulary skills and joy associated with book reading.
As they grow older reading will become an integral part of learning, but it can also remain a fun activity as well.
Worldwide Literacy is important and nothing should get in the way of anyone being able to read as a life skill.
Read out loud to children, then listen as they start to read out loud to you. There is nothing more comforting than being able to escape into the words of a great book.
