Motherly Life Notes

  • Leisure reading makes a difference in a child’s educational performance. Children who read for pleasure perform better in literacy tests, develop a broader vocabulary and increase their understanding of social cues and other cultures.

  • Reading for pleasure is a stronger indicator of success in school than a child’s socioeconomic background.

  • Parents can help by finding books that fit the interests of their children. If, for example, a young reader enjoys animals, check out the National Geographic Readers: Cutest Animals Collection. A child who would prefer gaming to reading, may enjoy My Life as a Gamer. The local library is generally a great resource to find a list of books that fit the interests of your children.
