Information and resources for Imagination Library families
Reading is Crucial
Reading to children at an early age is crucial to the development of their language skills. Take time to make the most of reading time with your child, especially during the summer months.
Read to your young children early and frequently. It is never too early to start reading to children and that is why the Imagination Library begins at birth!
Early reading together has a positive influence on many aspects of language development, including communication skills, word knowledge, and later reading ability. Research finds that reading frequency is more important than social economic class in predicting language growth: parents should read to children almost every day.
Learn the importance of reading with your children from birth!
