Bedtime reading can be a time for children and parents to bond as well as improve literacy skills for children.
"Researchers have found that kids who were raised with a regular routine of listening to and reading bedtime stories have a higher than average rate of childhood literacy. A bedtime reading routine is also a great way to establish healthy sleep habits early and reinforce them consistently--and kids with great sleep habits are more likely to retain what they’ve learned in school, grasp new material quickly, and think through problems creatively."
