Reading by Dr. Mitchell

Reading to your children is one of the best gifts you can give them, and it’s never too soon or too late to start! Reading to babies and young children helps with the development of their brains and prepares them for skills in learning to talk, read, and understand. Studies show that early steps of reading preparation have long-term benefits for children with school progress and success.  Taking time to read to your children is also a good way to bond with them and to show them you love and care for them. Ask your local librarian or pediatrician for tips in selecting books that are age-appropriate.

Thanks,

Dr. Mitchell
