Reading to children is a wonderful way to bond and connect with them. When a parent or caregiver reads to a child, it creates a special moment of shared experience that can strengthen the relationship between them. The close physical proximity of sharing a book, along with the shared emotions and reactions to the story, can create a warm and positive environment that fosters a sense of closeness and trust. Additionally, reading offers an opportunity for parents to engage with their children, asking questions about the story or characters, and sharing their own thoughts and perspectives. This kind of interaction helps to deepen the connection between parent and child and can promote a sense of security and emotional well-being in the child.

About Me


Reading to children is not only beneficial for the child, but also for the parent. When a parent reads to their child, it can create a sense of joy and fulfillment in the parent as they witness their child’s engagement and enjoyment of the story. Additionally, reading can provide a relaxing and calming activity for both parent and child, offering a break from the stresses of daily life. As parents read to their children, they can also develop their own skills and knowledge, as they are exposed to new books and stories, and are able to share their own insights and perspectives with their child.
