#A2ZofReadingAloud – Appreciating the Reading Aloud Experience

A2Z of reading aloud with kids

Reading Aloud is not science, it is a natural consequence of a parent’s need to show the beautiful world of books to their children. If you love books, it is something that you would do. But what if you aren’t a reader at all, then reading aloud is a task, and not the merry enjoyment that one would expect.

My top 10 reasons to Read Aloud?

My first answer, is always because it is fun. But there are so many more benefits to reading aloud for kids, and later with kids.

  1. Reading aloud helps our kids understand how to use language and to make sense of it.
  2. It helps them in information processing skills, vocabulary. It is scientifically proved that a child can comprehend way more than his/ her reading level if he is read aloud to regularly. Reading aloud helps with comprehension.
  3. Apart from language, reading also helps in an over all brain development.
  4. Reading regularly, also develops their listening skills. the kid learns to [over time] listen carefully to instructions, and comprehend them easily.
  5. It helps them concentrate. In many studies, it is proven a child can completely concentrate on a task for just 30 minutes. But to get to 30 minutes, but not all kids are the same and have same concentration levels .We can help them by reading to them initially for short periods and then progressively increasing it for longer periods.
  6. It also creates a love for the written word, an interest in books and a desire to read. however, the last one differs from kid to kid!
  7. When you read to a child, the child uses his imagination to fill colors in his mind. This in turn helps in hone his imagination.
  8. Creativity is not for the gifted few, in fact we can bring up creative kids, and research says one way to do it is reading aloud to them!
  9. I believe reading has helped me see different cultures, embrace their differences and celebrate their uniqueness. Our kids can be better collaborators, team-players, if they are aware and inclusive of people’s differences and one way to make sure of this is to read them diverse books.
  10. Reading develops a bond between the reader and the child. It is also a conversation starter, an ice- breaker, and also helps the child and you talk about the issues the child might be facing.

 

Keeping all the benefits of Reading Aloud to your child aside, because I am sure we all know all of this, the important questions that I get asked the MOST are – but how does one start, which book do we read, and most of all where is the time!? And I do agree, i felt overwhelmed, and disheveled, when i first decided to read aloud, but did not know where to start.  And this is the reason why I am writing these posts, to create a resource for moms who want to start reading aloud to their children at any age.

More than anything, motherhood is an adventure and reading to your child is something, the child will look forward to and have fun with. If he learns something from this experience, it is always a plus!
