Research has shown that children who are exposed to books from a young age and spend more time reading do better in school. Just 15 minutes a day can make all the difference in a child’s life. A small study published in Pediatrics in 2015 was the first to show the biological impact reading has on brain function. Researchers used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to show how reading “activates the parts of preschoolers’ brains that help with mental imagery and understanding narrative — both of which are key for the development of language and literacy.”
