How Children's Stories Educate While Entertaining

Reading to your children is an excellent way for them to begin to absorb the building blocks of language and make sense of the world around them. Children learn concrete language skills like grammar and spelling when they’re old enough to read books themselves, but even the smallest of children with the shortest of attention spans learns a lot from books when their parents take the time to read to them. Reading to an infant helps the child learn sounds, words and language, which help develop literacy skills. They’ll also start to appreciate the value of the written word and the importance of books in general.
