Why is reading important in early years learning?
Reading is a key driver in the development of children from a very young age. In the very early years, reading helps them to recognise sounds in order to string along simple words. As they progress into the toddler stage of the life cycle, reading helps children to understand new words as well as helping to develop their speech and expanding their imaginative potential.
There is no minimum age for children to start reading – children are never too young to enjoy stories and books. There are books specifically designed for all ages.
In the early years of life, children begin to learn through their senses so for example books are created with elements of touch and sound to help aid engagement with reading and develop their cognitive learning ability.
As they progress over the years, children move onto illustrated picture books with fun storylines which capture their imaginations and help them to learn through the mediums of curiosity and enjoyment.
Here at Early Learning Furniture we understand the importance of reading and the great benefits that it can bring. We aim to provide the best storage solutions to maximise the amount of books which can be stored in an easy accessible and organised manner.
A great place to store picture books is in a Kinderbox. We have a wide range of classroom kinderboxes and here’s a few reasons why we love them:
