Why Your Child Should Read Every Day


“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

 – Dr. Seuss

Dr. Seuss pretty much sums up why children love story time. Whether it’s before bedtime or on a lazy Sunday afternoon, a child who loves to read is already on the path to life-long success – here’s why:

Reason #1

No matter how old your little one is, reading wakens a number of regions in the left part of the brain - performing tasks that have to do with logic, such as in science and mathematics.

Even one chapter a day will ensure healthy brain and language development in your child, all you have to do is find what your child likes to read!

Reason #2

According to a study by the World Economic Forum, creativity is one of the top skills that individuals need to excel in the world of work. A growing body of research explores cognitive diversity, or diversity of thought, in improving effectiveness and problem solving which stems from reading on a consistent basis.

Reason #3

“Live life to express, not to impress.”

- Unknown

If you want your children to be able to draw on a rich vocabulary to express themselves clearly, get them to read. Since a book is essentially an expression of a writer’s thoughts - it is a blueprint for a child to express

Reason #4

If you want your child to feel inspired, reading is the way to go. They will be able to accept various challenges instead of running from them as they see characters from the book tackling challenges head-on.

So do you want your child to read books on the PC?
