The Adventures Of Scuba Jack,
Learning to read and write is crucial to your child’s success in school and throughout life. One of the first steps in learning to read is identifying each letter of the alphabet. In this fun, engaging activity book, your child will learn to identify, read and write lowercase letters.
the importance of reading
The frequency of reading to children at a young age has a direct causal effect on their schooling outcomes regardless of their family background and home environment.
- Reading to children at age 4-5 every day has a significant positive effect on their reading skills and cognitive skills (i.e., language and literacy, numeracy and cognition) later in life.
- Reading to children 3-5 days per week (compared to 2 or less) has the same effect on the child’s reading skills at age 4-5 as being six months older.
- Reading to them 6-7 days per week has the same effect as being almost 12 months older.
- Children read to more frequently at age 4-5 achieve higher scores on the National Assessment Program.
