Reading is the cornerstone of early learning. It engages the imagination and opens new doorways to adventure and possibilities. Early reading is a great way for parents to spend quality time with their children, while building a skill that will have lasting and ongoing benefits for their child.

Reading helps with basic speaking and communication skills. It also helps build language mastery, critical thinking skills, and enhanced concentration. The benefits later in elementary school and beyond will also be evident through test scores and basic comprehension of other core subjects. The benefits of early reading are impactful and it’s crucial for parents to make it a priority.
