Encouraging Children To Develop A Love Of Books

The more books a child has in their home, the smarter they’ll be as an adult, according to research. Reading is great for improving a child’s vocabulary, knowledge, and view of the world.

Italian researchers recently reported that reading to 6 to 12-year-olds out loud made them more intelligent. Thinking skills, vocabulary, word reasoning, and comprehension were just some of the areas that the children in the study improved in. It’s great that children develop more skills when books are read out loud to them, but it’s also an effective way to get kids interested in books and reading.

Children can further develop their knowledge as reading aloud gives them the chance to ask what specific words or phrases mean.

This could include making every Sunday morning a time for the whole family to read in bed. Parents should also consider taking a book and a kid’s comic with them wherever they go, so that downtime is filled with reading rather than
