Reaping Reading's Benefits

Why parents should read to their kids

You know you're supposed to read aloud to your kids, but your workday is long and sometimes you're just too tired. Is reading aloud really that important?

Yes, says the National Network for Child Care, and here's why: It increases your child's vocabulary, stimulates the imagination, teaches him how to listen, helps improve self-esteem and encourages positive social interaction.

Something else the network recommends: Make sure you choose a book that you enjoy, too. If you aren't enthusiastic, it will show. And remember that your child will have favorites and be ready to read them again and again.
