Why reading is so important

 

It’s no secret that reading to kids is highly beneficial for their development. There have been several studies on the positive effects of reading on a child’s growth. We believe that Story Time at The Lucky Childe offers an opportunity for children and their care givers to learn together through the power of reading and thoughtful play.

Reading to children helps them develop language and understanding of syntax. Often times as parents, we can get used to saying the same words to our children. Reading helps expand their exposure to new and different vocabulary. For our Story Times, we are conscious to pick books that expand language but are still fun and easily understood by our Littles.

It can be hard to get a toddler to be still for any length of time, however stories seem to be that magic combination of interest and imagination that help a small child concentrate. Reading to children helps them understand how to stay focused and absorb the message of a story. But don’t worry, we also incorporate a fun activity at the end of the story to get those wiggles out and help them express their creativity.

Reading to children allows us to explore other worlds together. Reading expands knowledge, understanding and imagination. By incorporating a diverse reading list from adventure and friendship to whimsy and learning lessons, we are able to provide a range of experiences for our Littles each day at Story Time.

We also look for books that talk about feelings. These books can help develop a sense of compassion and empathy for the characters. It also gives us a chance to talk to our kids about what certain emotions can look and feel like.

Lastly, we believe Story Time is a perfect opportunity for Bigs to enjoy one of our delicious craft coffee beverages while your Little snuggles on your lap with one of our house-made treats. Reading offers a wonderful opportunity to be together and that is what we are all about at The Lucky Childe.

Story Time for Kids

Once upon a time in a land called The Lucky Childe, there was a Little and their Big who enjoyed a Story Time together…
