Why Read 20 Minutes a Day, on k12reader.com, expresses strong merit for the value of parent’s reading to or with their children daily. This one activity improves listening skills, early literacy skills, academic performance, develops good habits, and improves relationships.
Because we are busy it is difficult to have “quality” one-on-one time with our children without distractions. Building 20 minutes into each day for reading together provides this important bonding time. There is nothing more wonderful than snuggling a young child on your lap while reading a few storybooks aloud. Even if your child is beyond the “snuggling” stage, spending 20 minutes reading independently provides you with quiet, uninterrupted time together engaged in the same activity. http://www.k12reader.com/why-read-20-minutes-a-day/
