It is a given that reading improves a child’s vocabulary and this in turn leads to highly advanced language skills. The child’s ability to express himself in the appropriate words also enables him to write well, which is extremely necessary when writing essays and reports for school. It is true that reading teaches children new words which make it easier to write. But, it is more than that. Unconsciously, through reading, they also absorb information on how to structure a sentence and how to use words and sentences in the most effective manner.
