It cannot be emphasized enough how important it is to read to your kids. It’s something you should do every day or at least at some regular frequency. There are so many different skill levels when it comes to “knowing how to read”. Being an above average reader will increase your child’s ability to do just about anything and everything necessary to eke out a living in this world. As I have said before, I believe that reading skill levels fall into a vast spectrum of beginning to advanced. There is always room for advancement in education and vocabulary.
The best method of teaching your child to read is repetition. By reading to your child at a high frequency, you set him up to know so much about this important skill without him even knowing for a moment that he’s learning. To him, it’s just fun and for you it’s quality time spent with your child.
