1. benefits of reading books for babies

1.1 strengthen the bonds as a family

  Parents need to spend part of every day together with their babies. The parents and babies are virtually becoming closer over time. For most people, love is time, love is memory. It is important to create an environment to spend time with babies. Reading to a baby is a good way that a mother can not miss. After birth, the baby will develop a bond with his/her mother immediately. Because they could hear the sound when they were in the womb. Their mothers’ voices are familiar to them. So they can recognize it after birth. At this time, if a mother can insist on reading to her baby every day, it can certainly help them to be closer.

1.2 help babies to learn by imitation

  At the beginning of a baby’s development, they do not know what, and how to learn a new thing. But they are good at imitating. Newborns that are a few weeks old can do an imitation, they can copy their parent’s facial expressions. As time goes by, elder babies will start to copy what their parents say word by word, phrase by phrase, and sentence by sentence. 

  Mothers can read to them repeatedly. Babies love repetition. It gives them enough time and examples to mimic the voice and words. Imitation plays a big role in the development of a baby. They can learn a lot of new things, new words in this process. 

1.3 help a baby to have better learning ability, large vocabulary

  Babies who are read by their parents every day will have a large vocabulary. Because they have access to more words. Listening has a direct impact on their language skills. Language ability always is a plus for a person. It can help babies to achieve their personal growth in the near future.

  During the process of reading, babies not only can hear the voices but also can see the colorful books. It does help them to recognize basic shapes and colors. As it is known that cloth books always have bright colors. Because babies love them, and these colors can excite the senses better.
