Pleasure Reading ‘Significantly’ Increases School Performance

This was a terrific article on the benefits of pleasure reading.

I especially like this quote toward the end of the article:

"Children who were read to regularly by their parents at age 5 performed better in all three tests at age 16 than those who were not helped in this way."

There are so many benefits to reading aloud and reading for personal enjoyment. Make the library a regular part of your weekly schedule, we have lots to offer for all ages!
