Children who read more are those who have parents who have the time to help them build their grammar, spelling, and raise imagination. Children who read more do better in class and get high grades. Children who read more helps lessen electric bills by spending less time in front of the television and playing video games. Children who read more have improved imagination and problem solving abilities. Do you pick up a book to read to your child while he or she is still young?

Agree with you. Parents definitely should encourage their children to read at early age.. let them keep this habit. i dun have children.. still single. But i value reading as one of the key to the vast of knowledge. My boss, she read to her child as early as she was 3 months pregnant.. means even before the boy was brought up into the world.Her children love books so much.... she even have that hugeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee private library at home.

Yes, reading is very important. I try to read to my son everynight, but he just doesnt care for books. Maybe when he's a little older he will sit still long enough to read a book...

i read to my children every single night when they were little..both of them now read extensively still as adults...reading is the most important thing anyone can ever learn...if you cant read you can not succeed in school every other class requires the eading of a text book....when my children started reading on their own i had them read to me for 15 minutes each evening...we were spending quality time together and they were gaining much needed confidence in themselves
