The importance of reading lies not only in teaching the kids how to read but also in the advancement of linguistic and literacy proficiencies. While reading, both the child and the parent need to get actively involved and engaged in a discussion about the book being read and its contents including the words, pictures, and story. When the parents use dialogues to read stories to their children, it gets quite interactive for the children and there is sure to be an increase in the verbal language expertise of the children.
It progressively switches the role in storytelling from the parent to the child. Kids should have access to a wide variety of books such as, counting books, alphabet books, rhyme books, story books, coloring books, fairy tales books, picture books, activity books and so on. This would widen the horizon of their thought process and would help in the development of different intelligences in children.
Reading story books helps the kids in discovering vocabulary that is not usually used by us in our day to day talks. While reading the parents should encourage the child to be inquisitive, ask questions and facilitate a conversation. This way the children are encouraged to be imaginative and to predict what might happen next in the story they are being read. Further, it shows their active involvement in the story and, their feedback and observations about the story should always be encouraged. When the children are encouraged to reveal their thoughts, ideas, emotions about the story, they feel good on being valued by the elders. The kids should be praised for their feedback so that they turn out to be confident about the language while speaking and writing.
Stories that you tell your child can be your own stories or the ones that are there in story books. The kids can learn a lot of things from these stories that can help them in their day-to-day lives. Love for reading acts like a stepping stone for the kids and helps them to become an eager learner and an assured reader, writer, and speaker through their lives. When the children sit down to read a book it gives them the much needed time to sit quietly and calmly in their own company with the book.
