Recent discoveries have shown that reading to children between the ages of 0 to 3 can help them realize the full potential of their brain. The research reveals that children who are read to when exceptionally young, are more likely to develop a lifelong interest in reading, do well in school, and succeed in adult life.
The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa has prepared a video which presents these exciting discoveries, “Precious Minds: Nurturing Literacy in the Early Years”. The video can be purchased from the preciousminds.org web site, and a streaming version of the video is now available on-line to allow the public to preview the video before ordering copies.
