The Importance Of Reading To Your Child

Reading To Your Child

Educational Consultant Lisa Hirsh-Wax talks about the importance of reading to your child.  Start reading to your child in the womb and continue after they are born.  Even if they do not understand, they can listen to the rhythm and cadence of the words.  Make reading at bedtime a routine and incorporate books into your day.  Your child will memorize favourite books, which is a great learning tool.  Take turns reading to each other.  All this will help foster your child’s love of reading and give them a strong foundation for learning.
