If not, don’t deprive your child, for this simple activity offers benefits in so many ways. The most obvious is language skills. By hearing the words and then coming to associate them with the pictures and letters on the page, your child improves their vocabulary and picks up the fundamentals of reading. One way to engage your child’s attention and imagination is with personalized children's books. With their name right on the front, they can’t help but be curious about the adventure and its outcome.
