Why should children Read?

From what I’ve seen , both as a parent and as a teacher, helping children develop

Reading skills is important because reading is the basic foundation for learning. Children who are good readers do, more often that not, get off a good start at school and this, in turn, feeds and boots their confidence levels. This turn into one of those cycles that simply feed  and lead from one good thing to another. Good readers are more confident at tackling books at school, both in terms of reading and comprehension. Once that bond with books is formed, this relationship often lasts for a life time.

What books consistently do is stir, induce and inspire a child’s imaginations. This is an element that is so very essential to a child’s all round development, imagination being the very beginning of a child’s concept of abstract thought. Books also encourage children to imagine worlds other than our own – they encourage  them to imagine a totally different world and then fill that blank canvas in, with colours of their own.imagination and pretend play ( both of which books encourage children to do) also go a long way in helping them conquer their fears in many different situations.
