Child Development & the Importance
of Reading to Children
The importance of reading to children cannot be over emphasized. It is also a great way to focus on the family. With that in mind, "Little Ones Reading Resource" is dedicated to every child and every family out there and to educating us "big" people about the importance of reading to children and its role in child development.
Every child deserves to have a good book read to her. Every child deserves to have good books he can call his very own, stored on his very own book shelf where he can pull them out and "read" them any time he wants.
The importance of reading to children is significant in child development, and reading books to little ones at an early age is essential. In fact, reading childrens stories aloud is one of the most important activities we, as parents, grandparents, teachers, and care-givers, can do for our kids. The importance of reading to children plays out in a myraid of developmental, emotional, and learning issues from bonding and security . . . to learning to read . . . to future success.
If you already read to your baby, toddler, preschooler, or school-aged child daily . . . BRAVO to you! You understand the importance of reading to children. This site will strengthen your conviction. If you only read occassionally, this site will encourage you to read more often. If you don't read books to your kids, this site will hopefully convince you about the importance of reading to children and get you started reading together TODAY!
The best part about reading childrens stories to our little ones is that we can ALL do it! We don't have to be experts, or rocket scientists, or teachers, or even millionaires to experience the joys of snuggling up with our little ones and enjoying a special story. There is SO MUCH more to reading books to a baby, toddler, preschooler, and school-age child than meets the eye. Isn't it great to know that something so simple can make such a difference?
This site will guide you through the importance of reading to children. We also offer a webstore which includes children's books to peruse and make some selections if you like. Our motto is . . . "great books, great prices, great customer service."
All children should have good books of their very own, as it is truly a fantastic way to encourage reading. However, we don't have to think of material things when we think of gifts. The greatest gift we can give our children is the gift of OURSELVES -- our time, our talents, our prayers, our thoughts of kindness, and our acts of love and compassion. Any day is a good day to step forward and offer the gift of yourself by reading a book to your little ones!
Please come on in and look around and learn about the importance of reading to children . . . and let's start reading together today!

Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
Richer than I you can never be--
I had a Mother who read to me"
