For Children

Reading can have powerful positive effects on the intellectual development, character, and overall outlook of a child. Early reading of books plays a vital role in the development of both spoken and written language skills. Reading also provides other benefits such as allowing busy parents the opportunity to spend “quality time” with their children. Children who are read to from an early age start to associate books with their parent’s love an attention. We encourage parents to read to their children because it allows them to become closer to their parents, helps in intellectual and character development, and creates an environment for a child to establish a lifelong habit of reading.
