Why Read 101 Picture Books? 

  • Reading builds vocabulary. The more words children encounter before starting school, the more words they recognize when they begin reading on their own. 
  • Reading exposes children to new situations and experiences. Books help them learn about the world around them. 
  • Reading aloud provides children with a reading role model. When you have fun reading together, your child learns that reading is fun!
