Children who are read to on a regular basis increase their vocabularies and comprehension of the world. They are in a better position to make connections with new information presented to them. In short, they are ready to learn. Reading with your child is the easiest way to activate your child's brain. Not only that, but it's a great way to share some special one-on-one time with your favorite little person.
