Read to your Child or Grandchild Even When You’re Gone

Spark Up Picture

Nothing sparks a child’s love for reading more than being read to when they are little. Research proves that reading books to preschool children (birth to 5 years of age) aids them in developing critical literacy and listening skills. These early experiences have a lasting effect on their language development, comprehension, memory and vocabulary. However, reading to them from a digital device isn’t recommended. The American Academy of Pediatrics strongly recommends no screen time for children under 2, and less than two hours a day for older children. You may be surprised to learn that a study done in 2013 found the following:

“. . . that children ages 3 to 5 whose parents read to them from an electronic book had lower reading comprehension than children whose parents used traditional books.”
