Reading aloud to children is one of the best ways to help children to discover the joy of reading.
It is never to early–or too late–to start. All children, from youngest to oldest, can benefit from listening to a story read aloud.
Reading aloud encourages children to read of their own, and to become better listeners and students. It helps to build vocabulary and language skills.
When you read aloud together, children learn that reading is important, and they learn that reading is fun.
