Reading to young children affects their brain activity and may just give them that boost they need to support and promote their early reading skills. Research shows that specific areas of the brain are affected when young children have reading exposure at home from an early age. These areas are critical for a child’s language development.
Sharon Callaghan, Barbara’s children’s book section extraordinaire, will be hosting story time every Tuesday in our “Wiggly Field” children’s book section. Sometimes, Sharon will invite special guests to read.
Make it a weekly book bonding ritual with the little ones to encourage reading.
