3 Reasons You Should Read with your Child 

1. Reading exposes your child to rich language and diverse content.  Book language uses a larger vocabulary and more complex grammatical structures than the short, one-way communication we tend to use in feeding and caring for our children.

2.  Reading with your children helps prepare their minds to succeed in school.  The benefits of shared reading knows no age limits.

3.  Reading with your child can enrich family ties and intimacy.    Reading together is family time; it is fun time, cuddle time, a time to share your passions, perspective, and your values but also a time to listen.
