The fact that young children would read is of a paramount importance.
A young kid, while reading a children’s book is making that neurons connect with other neurons (sinapsis).
In this way he is maturing and growing also in his mind.
It is very advisable to have young kids (6-8 years approximately) reading books specially made for those ages.
The kid also starts to recognize the world differently from an infant (he can’t speak) and more deeply; also he is starting to develop language in a wider sense, which will make him interact with other people and other kids. / Photo from: talking in class shushing. www classroom-teacher-resources com
