10 Great Reasons to Read to your Child

Reading is a wonderful way to keep your children’s mind stimulated during the summer, build vocabulary, open up new worlds to them and give them a life-long interest in learning.  Even when your child can read themselves you should still read aloud to them.
Here are 10 reasons to read to your child.
1. When you hold children and give them this attention, they know you love them.
2. Reading to children encourages them to become readers.
3.Children's books today are so well-written that they are fun even for adults.
4. Illustrations in children's books rank with the best, giving children a lifelong appreciation for beautiful art. Look for Newberry Award winning books.
5. Books are one great way of passing on your values.
6. Books will help your children's imaginations soar.
7. Until children learn to read themselves, they will think you create magic.
8. Listening to stories will help develop your child's attention span and model fluency.
9. When you give them this gift, you will create memories that last a lifetime.
10. Every teacher and librarian you ever meet will thank you.

Here are incentives to read everyday.
