The Bookworm toddler benefits – Reading to your children is essential to their brain development. Not only does it make them learn at an impressive rate, but it brings you closer to your children and strengthens the bond you share.
This mother and her baby share a great bond, because once this little bookworm finishes a book, he loses his mind. He doesn’t want the story to be over, and he will keep crying until another story is read!

At least we know that he will be one well-read little boy by the time he grows up. I bet he will force his parents to keep reading to him!
The Right Medicine: Books
Don’t be surprised if filling your child’s next prescription takes you to the local library instead of the pharmacy. Pediatricians who participate with Reach Out and Read (ROR), a nonprofit agency based at Boston University’s Medical Center, use well-child visits to teach parents about the importance of reading aloud. They may donate books to families, provide volunteer readers in the waiting room, or even write out a child’s prescription for a good book. Already in more than 2,000 clinics, hospitals, and private practices, ROR annually delivers at least 3 million books to children nationwide.
