Reading and Language Development in Children

Reading to a child aids in language development. As a child hears language spoken to him, he internalizes the sounds which he will use later in his own speech. Younger babies will not understand what the words mean at first, but will hear words, tones, and inflections which will eventually transfer to his own speech. Speaking to your child in a variety of tones and timbres stimulates an enormous amount of neural growth. You can do this throughout the day, but it is especially fun to change the tones and inflections as you read with your child, adjusting to different moods, characters and story lines. What a wonderful way to foster a lifelong love of reading!
