Why reading at young age matters

Parents don’t have to be convinced their children should be reading more. But saying “reading is good for you” may be not enough. What parents need is a list of strong reasons why.

The infographic, prepared by Harper Collins Children with the help from Brandpoint, is all about how reading helps children.

Here are just the four facts:

  • 15 minutes of reading per day makes over 1 million of words read in a year,
  • reading to a child in an interactive style raises IQ by at least 6 points,
  • daily reading to kids puts them almost 1 year ahead of those who are not being read to,
  • children without basic literacy skills when they enter school are up to 4 times more likely to drop out later.
