Children's Book Day
Philippine Daily Inquirer
According to the AAP, reading with children “stimulates optimal patterns of brain development and strengthens parent-child relationships at a critical time in child development, which, in turn, builds language, literacy and social-emotional skills that last a lifetime.”
A 2015 U.S. study found that books are more effective in increasing the quantity and quality of language in young children than modern electronic toys that produce lights, words, and songs.
