According to 'Brightly' (one of my favorite web sites) reading aloud to children has so many more benefits than you might think! Even kids up to 14 enjoy being read to as well as reading aloud to others. For starters, routinely reading aloud to kids before bed almost always becomes a cherished memory for both the child and the adult and may very well start a family tradition to be passed down for generations to come. Besides that when a child is read to it increases their reading comprehension, helps them pronounce words correctly, expands their vocabulary, introduces them to authors and genres they might otherwise avoid, helps foster awareness and empathy and so much more. Not to mention giving you the so much needed one on one quality time today's families desperately need. To read more about this important topic please click this link: Brightly
