The baby girl could scan her baby books without tearing a page prior to completing her first birthday. Now she is three years old and still loved books. She would like her dad or her mom to read stories before going to bed.
There is a popular theory of language acquisition called “schema” theory. Schema is an organized pattern of thought or behavior. As children develop separate schemata for experiences they acquire. They apply these experiences in their growing years and in their adulthood. Literacy in language helped to express these schematic experiences in a form of both verbal and written communications. Books are good source of vocabularies and general knowledge.
Non readers do not develop their reasoning skills and are simply dependent on intuitions. Their levels of communications are more on vernacular levels. Children who are wide readers become more literate and well rounded. Children who are good readers develop more self confidence. They know they could express themselves well.
