Reading to Children Makes Them Smarter

To confirm what many of us already know, reading to children makes them smarter.

Galley Cat reports that Perspectives on Psychological Science published an article last month that touted interactive reading experiences for children because, based on recent research, “reading to a child in an interactive style raises his or her IQ by over 6 points.”

Interactive reading includes "teaching them how to ask open-ended questions, encourage their children to read, shadow their children’s interests, and so on." 

My mom and dad read to me almost every night.  That must be why I'm so smart.
