Childhood Reading And The Reasons It’s So Critical
Books create imaginary worlds and are fun to read. Your child “travels” vicariously to remote story tale locations and their imagination goes wild. As you know, early reading creates the traditional increased vocabulary but it also helps to shape your child’s self-identity. In our post, we’ve teamed up with Jayce the Bee to explain the importance of childhood reading. Furthermore, we’ll discuss why strong character leads are beneficial as well.

What are positive affirmations?
For those who’ve never used positive affirmations, let me break it down for a minute. Positive affirmations are literally speaking good things out loud so that you can hear them. It’s more intentional than thinking good vibes; it’s actually saying, in repetition, all the positive things you want yourself to know. For example, “I am strong,” or “I can do anything I put my mind to.” By listening to yourself say positive messages, your actions will be influenced to do positive things.
How does it apply to childhood reading?
With that being said, let’s talk about how positive affirmations apply to childhood reading. Often, I find myself reading out loud to my children during book time. My kids are literally listening to every word I say. Since the words that our ears hear affect our actions, I find it important to read books that speak life. Just as positive affirmations influence our thoughts and behaviors, other words spoken aloud do the same. After reviewing Jayce, A Bee Adventure for myself, I feel confident that the book has a clear message of positivity and self assertion.
Benefits of early childhood reading:
- Teaches social awareness
- Practices language and spelling
- Develops association with positive role models
- Provides outlets for imagination
- Sets the tone for further academics
