After doing a lot of research on the impact of reading with and to young children, it is easy to see why reading matters. The evidence is overwhelming. Suffice it to say that it may be the single best thing you can do for your children. Even living in a lower socio-economic class doesn’t impact a child’s future as much as whether they were read to and that they learned to read well. Reading really matters.
Creating this infographic I featured as much of the quantifiable research I could find as well as show the implications of reading with and to children.
This infographic was created for Harper Collins Childrens with Brandpoint.
