Our children are curious and always ready to learn. Our children are capable learners and any educational experience during the preschool years can have a positive impact on school learning. Do not think that it is ever to too late to get started - Just get started!
Read to our child. Read with your child. Let your child see you Reading every day.
If you need to know and understand why:
"Reading is a complex cognitive process of decoding symbols in order to construct or derive meaning (reading comprehension). It is a means of language acquisition, of communication, and of sharing information and ideas. Like all language, it is a complex interaction between the text and the reader which is shaped by the reader’s prior knowledge, experiences, attitude, and language community which is culturally and socially situated. The reading process requires continuous practice, development, and refinement." [retrieved from Wikipedia on 7 January 2012
