Read to Children Group

Text from the graphic above. 

Read to Children Saint Leo University Group for students, faculty, and staff.  This group is for SLU students, faculty, and staff who want to learn more about reading to children from zero to 12 years old.  Whether you are a parent, grandparent, guardian, or teacher, we hope you will join our group for recommended reading lists, great discussions, special read-aloud events, prizes, and more.
Reading to your child is proven to have many important benefits from cognitive development to psychological and emotional implications.   Starting from birth to age 5, studies have noted that reading to your child daily will provide exposure to approximately 1.4 million words!  This exposure to words in both oral and written form is helpful for early literacy success while instilling a passion for reading.  Children and caregivers have noted the positive effects of daily reading such as safety, love and an emotional connection during this time. It is never too early to start reading to your child. So, pick up a book and begin to enjoy all the benefits reading to a child has to offer.
