“Reading is the single most important skill necessary for a happy, productive and successful life.” It is critical for parents to guide children through their reading from an early age and developing those skills takes active engagement. As a parent, your role is to boost your children’s learning potential simply by making books and story readings an integral part of their lives. There are so many benefits of reading for both children and adults. Kids who read often and widely get better at it by exercising their brains by developing a child’s imagination. If the children are engaged in a story, they are also imaging the characters and how they would feel in the exact same situation. Reading teaches children about the world around them outside of their own experiences, as they are exposed to ideas which may be very different from those around them. Reading to children not only helps kids expand their vocabulary and knowledge, but also passes on traditional wisdom and lessons, and cultivates creativity and interest in learning.

As a parent, you are the predictor of early literacy success and future academic excellence. Children need their parents’ help to navigate through early childhood reading, which can contribute to future success in school. They can and should play a major role in helping and encouraging their children’s development in reading skills. Short stories and poems have the power to benefit children in a myriad of ways. Act as a good role model for your children by reading to them often and providing a wide variety of reading materials for them. Knowledge is power. Start reading today and enrich their minds. Help your child begin this lifelong relationship with the printed word, so they may grow with flying colors.

Children who are raised to enjoy books will profit from a life long valuable habit, and we hope that our website can serve as a convenient and accessible platform in this process. We hope you and your child will enjoy our books. Happy reading!
