There are many benefits of reading aloud to children. Caregivers who read to children at home at least three times per week have children who are likely to score in the top 25% of reading scores compared to children who are read to less often. Reading aloud promotes children developing new words, developing language skills, growing their reading comprehension and it can help them think and talk about their own feelings and experiences as they relate to characters in the book.
