Reading is like walking into an imaginary world with new characters, feelings, and ideas. The more you read, the deeper you dive into this other world. Your imagination and emotions are engaged. It’s not a passive activity like watching the video, but rather your mind is active, subconsciously predicting what’s to come and developing opinions about the characters. And that’s why it is a perfect activity for kids. The imaginations of young children are so open and ready for stimulation and books are a perfect way to engage them at every age. It builds skills that keep on giving all the way through high school, college, and eventually careers.
