Reading is good for language development. It increases and enriches the vocabulary, making it easier for children to put their own thoughts into words. Reading can also contribute to social development. Children can put themselves in the shoes of different characters and learn that one person can think differently about a situation or event than another. Reading also improves concentration and can stimulate the imagination.
