As a parent, you know the powerful effects of reading to your little one – his mind gets stimulated, and many new neural connections are made in his brain.

Reading aloud to your child is one activity that is powerful enough to greatly enhance brain development. Your young child would develop language and listening skills early, and also learn to concentrate, organise his ideas and pick up some prediction skills.

This process of reading to your kid is best not outsourced. That is because your child thinks you are the most important person in the world, and looks up to you as his most esteemed role model.

And if you show how enthusiastic you are to read to him, you would also deepen your child’s interest in learning to read, as research findings point out.
