Reading aloud in the child’s first years builds their vocabulary, their knowledge about the world, and the sounds and patterns of written language—all of which lay a solid foundation for literacy. Reading also is a great way to involve everyone at the same time. Reading allows everyone to cuddle together and bond. Daily reading experience for just 10 minutes a day will do wonders.
