Reading to children is the best way of encouraging them to love books and reading. By reading stories to children every day, you are forming a link for them between reading and comfort. 

Engaging in books allows us to be transported to other places and worlds. Reading to children takes them into a world that goes well beyond our typical everyday spoken language. 

The importance of reading for children cannot be underestimated, Reading for pleasure can benefit a child’s education, social and cognitive development, their wellbeing, and their mental health.

Reading is a key life skill.
