Reading is one of those things that so many of us take for granted. It’s hard to remember that there was a time in our lives when we didn’t know how to, and that it was something that we actually had to learn how to do.
Do you remember when you started to learn how to read? Was it at school, or did you start learning how to read at home?
As You Might Have Guessed, Reading At Home Is Important
The report of the National Commission on Reading, which was conducted in 1985 but remains one of the most cited documents on the subject, claims that the single most influential factor in a child’s literacy development is books being introduced at home even before they start school.
