The power of reading to your children

Updated: Apr 18, 2021

At Wild Thing Books, we believe in the power of reading. But don’t take our word for it, there have been numerous studies stating that reading to your child from a young age has invaluable benefits, including comfort, relaxation, increased confidence as well as feeding their imagination and growing their vocabulary.


Here are just some of the benefits of reading to children:


  • Developing a bond with your baby

  • Improved language skills. A larger vocabulary is often an indication of better academic performance.

  • Cognitive development is supported

  • Develop imagination and creativity

  • Develop empathy and a deeper understanding of the world around them

  • Social skills and interactions improve

  • Develop a life-long love of reading


Here at Wild Thing Books, we want you to enjoy your time reading with your children, so our books are carefully chosen to delight children and adults alike. Think awe-inspiring stories and eye popping animations!

Did you know that four out of ten children on free school meals are not able to read well by the age of 11? Let’s close the gap before it’s too late!
