The Importance of Reading to Your Child
We cannot emphasise enough the importance of reading to your child from the earliest possible age. It is a wonderful shared activity, but also lays the groundwork for listening, memory, learning and language skills needed slightly later in life while simultaneously teaching your baby about communication and the world around him. Numerous studies have showed that children who are read to from day one develop a higher aptitude for learning and do better in all facets of formal education. Singing is another natural way to communicate and bond with your child, and playing classical music or nursery rhyme CDs can further augment baby’s cognitive development when you are busy doing other things.
