While 56 percent of toddlers who have their own books enjoy reading, only 18 percent have such an attitude toward the written word
Children who have their own books develop reading habits faster and acquire a love of reading than those who do not. A British study, conducted on 56,000 respondents, showed that children with their mini-library read 22 percent above the expected level.
More than 380,000 children in the UK, however, do not own books, which can affect their reading ability, but also the absence of a tendency to have fun and enjoy life – warned the National Literacy Fund, which conducted the analysis.
While 56 percent of toddlers who have their own books enjoy reading, only 18 percent of those who do not own a personal library have such an attitude towards the written word. Just under seven percent of respondents said they didn’t have any books at all.
– The size of the home library affects literacy and intelligence, and reading books stimulates the child intellectually, mentally, and emotionally – it is stated in the explanation of the scientist.
