When children are reading it can have a wonderful calming effect on them. Reading doesn’t just give children a head-start in learning; the ritual of sharing a story and providing special time for parents and carers to build a strong and loving relationship with their children is vital.
I believe every childhood should be enriched by books, and all children should get to experience the joy of a story. Reading for pleasure has a dramatic impact on educational outcomes, well-being and social mobility and enables children to develop their speech and language skills, their literacy skills and their imaginations with escapism to jump into a fantasy world of books they will love to read. http://www.jofrost.com
