Reading is essential to learning in the early years. Having 3 boys (including an 8 year old), I have subsequently discovered the benefits for us as parents. Our efforts of reading, three or four books, every night before bed from 4 months old has developed a passion for reading. The benefits to us comes in the form of homework. Our 8 year old naturally reads every night before bed. HOMEWORK DONE!!!!
