The Moral Of The Story: What You Read With Your Children Matters

One of the most important activities for a caregiver and child is reading together. Reading prepares a child to succeed academically, stimulates imagination, and facilitates closeness. Children as young as a few months of age can look at pictures, listen to your voice, and draw associations between the book and the world around them. Children love the sound of language before they understand that it comes from the words on the page.
