Reading to Young Children

Annotated Research.

Question: What is the effect of reading aloud to young children?

Answer: “Head Start children whose mothers learned to read to them outperformed children whose mothers did not have this training.” GE Marrion. 1988. P. 218.

Comment: Nice to have validation for our recommendations that parents read to young children. Comes under the heading of an accumulation of evidence that supports the recommendation. RayS.
