The Benefits of Reading to Children

A study done by the University of Goettingen has shown that children who were read to more frequently during lockdown by caregivers learned more words compared to children who were read to less frequently. Children with more screen exposure learned to say fewer words compared to those children who had lesser screen time. The researchers said that increased screen time occurred due to the unprecedented circumstances that families found themselves in during lockdown, including but not limited to the closure of daycare centres, sports facilities, and playgroups for children. The study was done by an international consortium of researchers from 13 countries who investigated the impact of Covid-19 related social isolation measures on 2,200 young infants and toddlers between 8 and 36 months.
