As you may be aware, having a well-read child at home can be very beneficial. What you may not know, however, is that reading with your child can have even more advantages (especially if your child is younger). To learn what a few of these are so you can start scheduling reading time with your child, refer to the following post.

How Reading With Your Child Can Benefit Them

  1. First of all, you'll spend more quality time with your child. This will give you both the chance to bond, feel closer to each other, enjoy each other's company, and strengthen your relationship, which can impact your child's life tremendously.
  2. A well-read child can have a different outlook on life. However, for your child to become well-read, you first need to help them build the habit of reading. When you read with them, you're making reading part of their daily routine.
  3. Reading comprehension can be challenging to some children. Luckily, when you read with them, you get to answer questions (about vocabulary, pronunciation, the story, the characters, and more), which will help them become better readers.
  4. Not only can you answer questions, you can also ask questions. This can help your child to be more critical of what they're consuming. For instance, you can ask their opinion on a plot point, or even ask them to use a new word they learned while reading in a sentence.
  5. Finally, reading with your child can be incredibly enriching for the both of you. This is because you'll be able to share your opinions, doubts, interpretations, and more, which can open your eyes to other ways of understanding the text.
