Great children's books like these entertain, teach reading skills, or even calm children before bedtime. But the benefits of reading go far beyond these obvious facts. Reading at an early age:
  • Strengthens bonds with parents
  • Increases vocabulary and language skills
  • Teaches new things and concepts
  • Helps with concentration and focus
  • Establishes logical thinking patterns
  • Develops communication skills
  • Primes children for academic success
If you read to a child, he or she will literally hang on your every word. If you child sees you reading books, they will be likely to do the same. Make it a habit to read to or with your child every day. 

If you need suggestions, look no further than Fundamentally Toys for our expert help. We offer a carefully selected assortment of some of the best children's books to help your child grow up with a lifelong love of reading.
