Health Tip: Reading Out Loud With Your Child
It helps improve self-esteem

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Reading aloud to your child is a great way to spend time together, and it helps the child develop and learn.

The American Association of School Librarians says the benefits of reading out loud to a child include:

  • Improved self-esteem and sense of security.
  • Improved communication between child and parent.
  • Exposure to concepts such as colors, shapes, letters and numbers in a fun way.
  • Improved skills, such as listening, language, memory and vocabulary.
  • Exposure to the world around the child.
  • Development of positive attitude, healthy behavior and social values.
  • Fostering a love of reading.
