The Benefits of Music & Reading for Young Children

It’s never too early to introduce your children to reading and music. There are many benefits to reading to your young children: Reading is calming, promotes longer attention span and focus, builds listening skills, encourages the use of imagination, and helps your child understand the power and meaning of words. Music is equally important for children. Studies suggest that music and movement help nurture brain development, calm and focus the mind, promote listening, and improve motor skills, language, and problem solving.
