5 Benefits of Reading to Your Child

5 Benefits of Reading to Your Child

Reading aloud is one of the most important habits that I seek to cultivate in our home. Yet in spite of how much I value literacy and literature, I’m surprised that often several days go by and we’ve barely read anything besides naptime stories.

Even though I think of myself as “a mom who reads aloud,” it’s easy to let the habit slip in the midst of the busyness and distractions of daily life.

I have to remind myself often to keep read alouds a priority and a default activity. Here are some of the benefits I like to remind myself of as prompts for pulling out those library books one more time:

Reading aloud strengthens family relationships.
I love it when all of my kids, from age 7 down to age 2, sit with me and listen to the same story together. We get to share a bond over the book, and my kids enjoy having my undivided attention.

Making this a consistent habit helps my kids get used to listening. We love having these peaceful moments in the midst of a busy schedule; it helps us all develop our bonds as a family.

Reading aloud develops literacy and attention spans.
Some educators claim that reading out loud has a bigger impact on a child’s language development than all the day-to-day conversations you have.

While I believe both reading and conversations are vital, I agree that books are irreplaceable when it comes to making early cognitive connections between speech and print, along with adding a lot of variety to children’s vocabulary.

Read-alouds also benefit children by helping to build their attention spans. The ability to focus on a storyline is increasingly rare in today’s screen-saturated culture. By helping your child develop this ability, you’re giving her an invaluable tool for succeeding in her education.

In elementary school, American school children start learning about the United States government and history.

Teaching kids about their home country is a key element of shaping their cultural identity and sense of self. Whether your child was born in the U.S. or not, learning about her country of residence is important for her education.

And giving kids an understanding of our national history can help them begin to form their own understanding of our country, both its geography and its political structure.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when teaching kids about the U.S.:
