The power of story time on language development.
Research shows that reading stories to children has beneficial effects on their development. It stimulates their imagination, broadens their minds, and increases their language skills and vocabulary. Kids that are read to a lot in early childhood go on to become significantly more proficient in their native tongue than children who are not.
That same logic also applies to second language acquisition. Extensive early-childhood reading can develop proficiency in the second language (so long as its comprehensible).
