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.
