Below are some benefits that highlight the importance of reading to your child between the ages of two and five:


A stronger relationship with you:

As your child grows older, he will be on the move—playing, running, and constantly exploring his environment. Snuggling up with a book slow downs and recaptures that sweet, cuddly time you enjoyed when he was a baby.Instead of being seen as a chore or a task, reading will become a nurturing activity that will bring the two of you closer together.


Academic excellence:

One of the primary benefits of reading to toddlers and preschoolers is a higher aptitude for learning in general.
Numerous studies have shown that students exposed to reading before preschool are more likely to do well in all facets of formal education.
If a student struggles to put together words and sentences, this makes it difficult for them to grasp the math, science, and social concepts during their elementary school


Basic speech skills:

Throughout toddlerhood and preschool, your child is learning critical language and enunciation skills.
By listening to you read One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, your child is reinforcing the basic sounds that form language.

“Pretend reading”—when a toddler pages through a book with squeals and jabbers of delight—is a very important reading readiness activity.
As a preschooler, your child will likely begin sounding out words on his own.


The basics of how to read a book:

Children aren’t born with an innate knowledge that text is read from left to right, or that the words on a page are separate from the images.
Essential reading readiness skills like these are among the major benefits of early reading.


Better communication skills:

When you spend time reading to toddlers, they will be much more likely to express themselves and relate to others in a healthy way.

By witnessing the interactions between the characters in the books you read, as well as the connection with you during story time, your child is gaining valuable communication skills.


Mastery of language:

Early reading for toddlers leads to better grasp of the fundamentals of language as they approach school age.


More logical thinking skills:

Another illustration of the importance of reading to children is their ability to grasp abstract concepts, apply logic in various scenarios, recognize cause and effect, and utilize good judgment.

As your toddler or preschooler begins to relate the scenarios in books to what’s happening in his own world, he will become more excited about the stories you share.


Acclimation to new experiences:

As your child approaches a major developmental milestone or a potentially stressful experience, sharing a relevant story is a great way to help ease the transition. For instance, if your little one is nervous about starting preschool, reading a story dealing with this topic shows her that her anxiety is normal.


Enhanced concentration and discipline:

Toddlers may initially squirm and become distracted during story time, but eventually they’ll learn to stay put for the duration of the book.
