Children's Environment and Behavior: Reading and Telling Stories to Young Children

Abstract

Child development specialists have long noted that reading books to children or telling them stories triggers their imagination and sharpens their literacy skills. Poverty may jeopardize the quality of the home environment, particularly by reducing the quality or amount of time parents have for literacy activities with their children. This can limit a child's readiness for school, putting him or her at an educational disadvantage.
