Title quote taken from "Goodwill Librarian", Facebook page.
Eight reasons to read a book aloud to your child:
Sitting on a parent’s lap, engulfed in their arms, sharing a story together causes children to associate physical closeness to a love of literature.
By finding time in a busy day to read a book, tells a child that books are important and reading is important to a parent.
Creating a special time and place to read, helps teach children that books are valuable and should be respected.
Small children who are read to often quickly become familiar with book orientation (how to hold a book; parts of a book; which direction pages turn etc.).
Using silly voices makes reading aloud a fun experience and encourages children to want to learn to read.
Vocabulary is built by experience. The more variety and rich the experience, the more likely children are to excel in this area.
Page turning is a pleasurable, tactile act. Eye strain can be caused by eBooks.
Sharing a story together creates a calm atmosphere.
I would love to hear your reasons …
