[52. Having good listening skill will lead to better reading comprehension skills in children]

If parents want their child to obtain reading comprehension skill, it is very important to read books to their child.

In fact, for children, there is difference between READING books and UNDERSTANDING the contents of books.

When your child is not used to read letters and sentences smoothly, they tend to focus on reading just the letters and cannot read and understand the meaning at the same time.

When you read to your child, they can picture the story themselves. Your child can focus on listening and understand the story contents at the same time.

This is a great practice for reading comprehension skills before letting your child read by themselves and comprehend stories.

Listening to stories read by parents helps your children develop their listening skills and obtains the basics of reading comprehension skills.
