Read to Children Aloud

1319Reading aloud to your children from birth is more than just great parenting, it’s also a recommendation of The American Academy of Pediatrics. Reading to your children from an early age will help strengthen your bond, while activating certain areas of their brain. Children who are read aloud to are quicker to understand the meaning of language, and show strength in visual imagery.*

Show your enthusiasm about reading and your kids will get excited too. Have fun picking out books together, and remember to encourage your older children to read too, which could help them grow into adult readers.

Express your love today!
