When children read with their parents, they practice imagination! Psychologists have shown imaginative social play improves symbolic thinking, language development, and reasoning skills. Excessive screen time, in contrast, has a negative impact on a child's brain development, decreasing concentration, reducing socialization and compromising the child's innate ability to build a large vocabulary.

Parent-child reading also has the benefit of reducing hyperactivity, aggression and attention issues that many children experience. Reading Lessons For brings home many advantages for your family—in addition to encouraging sports, home-team loyalty, and making family time extra special!!
