According to child development expert Dr. Lillian Juadiong, reading stories to kids before bedtime is beneficial in more ways than one. She states that this activity will give children a head start when they go school as it will improve their listening abilities, communication skills, vocabulary and creativity. There are many books that can be read before bedtime but the best options have to be the ones that teach valuable lessons in a way that captivates a child’s imagination.
