There have been many books written for parents to use when reading to their children, and most modern parents take the time to read to their children when they put them to bed for the night. This is a good way to help their children learn to love books and reading, and it is also a way to spend quality time with them. Unfortunately, many parents stop reading to their children as soon as they can read the books on their own.
Childhood memories sustain people throughout their lives, and helping them amass as many good memories as possible is important. One reason small children like to have bedtime stories read to them is because it is comforting to hear their parents’ voices. Reading to children after they learn to read on their own does not diminish the pleasure, and it can give them even more great memories for the years ahead.
