One of the best ways to ensure your child's success in school is by reading to him or her. Research has proven that children that are exposed to lots of language (both verbal and written) tend to do better in school. It doesn't matter what you read, as long as it peaks your child's interest and you sit and look at the pages together. Reading to a child shows them, without any instruction, that books are read from front to back and words are read from left to right. They figure this out on their own as they watch you read. Books provide information and insight to things that your child may never be exposed to in normal daily life. Your son may see a picture of a parachute in a book, and he can learn what it does and what it is used for without ever even touching one. Reading also provides special quality time together and builds focusing skills. Here are some tips for making reading fun for your preschooler.
