Parents who read to their preschoolers are helping them become better readers later. “Shared parent-child book reading during children's preschool years leads to higher reading achievement in elementary school, as well as greater enthusiasm for reading and learning… in an international study involving 15-year-olds from 14 developed countries, students whose parents read books with them regularly during the first year of primary school scored an average of 14 points higher on a comprehensive reading assessment.”
