It will mean that too, though.
And you probably don’t want to read to your children because it will “improve numeracy”. Yes, a number of scientific studies have shown that your child will do better in math IF they are regularly read to.
The problem with knowing all the good stuff about what reading to your children does, is that it makes all sound so b.o.r.i.n.g.
Which is crazy.
How is getting lost in worlds beyond your mind’s borders boring?
How is being able to imagine different times and places boring?
How is being able to see a better world boring?
Of course, it’s not.
This is why we want our children to be bookworms.
It is fun.
And you can help your child become that future bookworm, simply by holding her on your lap and reading to her. Every single day.
