Benefits of Reading to Your Newborn

1. It provides bonding time. Reading a book to your newborn is a one-on-one activity that can turn into a special, quality time with your baby. 2. It prep's the child for reading on their own. Research shows that the more words a baby is exposed to, the better prepared he/she is to eventually start reading on their own. 3. It boosts brain power. There is a direct link between how many words a baby hears each day and their language skills. One study found that babies whose parents spoke to them a lot scored higher on standard tests when they reached age 3 than children whose parents weren't as verbal. 4. It generates a response from the baby. You will notice your little one responding to the rhythmic movement of your voice with her arms and legs. 5. It introduces emotion to your child. Your baby is exposed to feelings through the different sounds you use when reading, whether it's doing a voice for a specific character or describing what's going on in the book. 6. It exposes the child to visual. Reading picture books presents your newborn with a variety of shapes, letters and colors that she will begin to recognize as the months go on. 7. Shows them that reading is fun. Retrieved from https://www.parents.com
