Never Too Old To Be Read To

As parents we are frequently told about the importance of reading aloud to our children. It's not just important to developing early literacy skills, it also can have a significant impact on behavior and empathy. But it doesn't have to stop once they are able to break out the chapter books and read to themselves. While studies and experts agree that there are additional benefits to reading to older children, including increasing fluency, vocabulary, and overall reading success, reading aloud to our big kids goes beyond academics.
