A recent Globe and Mail article (“The simplest, cheapest way to give your child a healthy start: Read to them“) opens with a sentiment we love.
Read aloud to your children and grandchildren. Read and sing and talk to them every day. Read to them until they can read for themselves. Then read together. And read to them some more until they start school, then encourage them to read even more.
Why? Besides the obvious (we don’t have to tell you that reading is fun!), reading with children is considered vitally important for optimal neurological development. In fact, both the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Canadian Paediatric Society recommend that their members do all they can to encourage parents to read with their babies.
