Books can be a great escape for your child to explore new worlds and be exposed to situations that pale in comparison to the overly marketed product placement of a television series. Reading to your child provides you with moments to educate as well.

The opportunity to increase your child's vocabulary in and of itself is a prime reason to read to them. Reading can create an early interest in reading books when they are alone and for the remainder of their lives.
