Studies have shown that talking to your kids can help build their vocabulary, but reading to them out loud is the best way to improve their literacy. When they hear you read, they learn how much fun reading can be and become more determined to learn how to read on their own.
There are a number of documented benefits associated with reading stories with your kids. Reading stories together:
A better attention span will help them perform better, both at school and in later life.
Listening to you read helps them learn correct pronunciation, word usage and grammar; skills they will use in their own speaking and writing as adults.
Discussing stories as you read them together helps increase your child’s problem-solving abilities and gain insights into the’ motives of the characters.
Studies have revealed that children who are read to regularly at age 4 to 5 years perform better in school tests at 8 to 9 years.
By visualising the stories in their minds, they can experience situations outside their own personal experience and learn about life in other countries and cultures.
When children associate reading with happy memories, they are more likely to persist in learning to read.
Understanding other people’s points of view through the eyes of story characters helps kids to develop empathy.
The heroes and villains in stories help children work out right from wrong and form basic morals and values.
Being read aloud to helps kids to listen better and for longer; a skill that will serve them well in later life.
Any activity that requires toddlers to move their fingers helps them develop their fine motor skills, such as helping you to turn the pages and lifting flaps to see what they reveal.
When your child asks you to read their favourite stories over and over, it’s a sign that their memory skills are developing.
Reading stories together and sharing common experiences helps strengthen the bond between parent and child.
Setting up a space for their book storage can also give them a sense of ownership over their books and encourage them to take pride in their collection and clean up when they've finished reading.
