The importance of reading from an early age can never be overstated; it is the key to future success in their education journey. Reading makes up a fundamental part of language development in early childhood. Not only does it help with a child’s ability to understand words, but it also ignites the spark for imagination. Reading plays a crucial role for speech development and introduces children to the world around them as well as new concepts.
