Want children who grow up learning to pay attention, to concentrate and to be still?

Those are just a few of the benefits of reading to your kids when they are small, like from birth to 5 years of age. That’s according to a study reported on in the latest issue of WebMD.com in a story by Sonya Collins. Collins wrote about a study of 450 families.

The study found the kids, longterm, were less aggressive, less destructive, less disobedient, too.

And this does not mention at all the benefit of a young person having her imagination opened to the whole wide world through books, or just the simple pleasure of sitting in a parent’s lap during reading time.
