Books Your Child Should Read Before First Grade reading

First Grade Reading

Reading in school and at home is important for many reasons, like language acquisition, communication and the sharing of information and ideas. A book takes the reader on a journey and opens up a lifetime of knowledge and information. Reading requires continuous practice, development, and refinement. Children who grow up reading books stand out by the way they think and act from those who have not been exposed to reading. Reading paves the way to education and wisdom. It has been proven that children who are introduced to reading at an early age seem to have a better understanding of phonics, achieve language skills with ease, have an abounding vocabulary and possess greater mental abilities. It is never too early to read to your children and get them excited about words and the world around them.
