Everyone knows that reading to children is a great way to get them interested in books and foster a love of literature. But did you know that reading for children can also help you grow your business?
By reading books to your kids, it gives you insights into their interests that can then be applied to your business to tap to a younger market.
Why Reading should be Encouraged?
The United States has a literacy rate of 99%, which is quite high when compared to other countries in the world. In fact, the US is ranked number 12 for literacy rates in the world. However, even though it ranks highly in literacy, there are still many groups that have lower numbers.
One group that has a lower literacy rate is children aged 0-5 years old, with a national average of 86%.
This is the exact same reason why the government is promoting reading materials and other literature to parents that can then be shared among their kids.
