Storybook Fun-Toddler Time-Tiny Tales-Ebooks Activities at Windermere Branch Library
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
It’s been proven over and over again the importance of reading to and with children for children’s cognitive development.
Below, in italics, is an excerpt from https://www.all4kids.org/2017/03/03/importance-reading-children/
When you begin reading aloud to your child, it essentially provides them with background knowledge on their young world, which helps them make sense of what they see, hear, and read. In fact, many educators and researchers postulate that “It is the talk that surrounds the reading that gives it power, helping children to bridge what is in the story and their own lives,” rather than just the vocalization of the words. Introducing reading into your child’s life, and the conversations that it will prompt, helps them to make sense of their own lives, especially at a young age.
