There is a unique joy in reading aloud to children – try it out on World Read Aloud Day (February 1st) and discover the magic for yourself. Sharing a story with children forges a bond between parent and child, promotes language skills, and helps you both relax!
Asking ‘Why?’ and ‘What if?’ questions at the end of the story promotes authentic discussion and builds children’s critical thinking and self-expression skills.
