Read Aloud to Your Children

We all know there are many good things that come from reading aloud to your children, although making it a priority in a hectic, nighttime schedule can be tough.. Here are a couple of reminders as to why it should be part of your daily routine:       Builds vocabulary       Improves reading comprehension       Promotes empathy       Reduces stress       Boosts brain development       Exposes children to different experiences       Increases chances of later success       Helps develop communication skills       Builds self-esteem       Deepens family connections As they get older, have them read aloud to younger siblings, or to you, on a consistent basis to keep their skills elevated.  Happy reading!  ~ Gail Marie
