Ready to Read: Reading Resources

How does reading to your child help your child learn to read?

  • Reading together remains the single most effective way to help children become proficient readers.

  • Children who enjoy being read to are more likely to want to learn to read themselves.

  • Reading together develops vocabulary, comprehension, and general knowledge needed to understand other books and stories when they are older.

  • Reading introduces children to "rare" words that they may not hear in everyday conversation.
