Research has proven again and again that reading for twenty minutes to a child is very important for there development.

Weather your a childcare/ daycare provider, nanny or parent; reading to children teaches them about words and opens there depth of vocabulary and knowledge. They are able to use their imagination and expand in there little mind.
