Dear Parents;

  • Children who are read to have larger vocabularies.
  • Children who are read to tend to continue to read into adulthood.
  • Children who are read to have higher comprehension skills.
  • Children who are read to develop writing skills much earlier.
  • Children who are read to tend to have higher grades throughout their schooling.
  • Children who are read to often become writers.
  • Children who are read to will read to their children.

Parents, please read to your children.

About lissywrites

As an avid writer and poet, Alyssa Hubbard explores the earthly and spectral talismans that carry us from life to death and back again through her work. As the darkness within makes its way from pen to paper, she finds room for more joyous activities, such as sampling new ice cream flavors, singing in public, and geeking out over the latest anime. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in English, works in Digital Marketing, and has been writing (professionally) for 8 years. Her work has been featured in literary journals and magazines such as Adanna, The Coffin Bell, and many others.


  1. This is such an inspiring post Alyssa. I might not be a parent, but I can still read to my little sister and she’ll experience what I did when I was younger. Reading to children builds lasting memories and a tighter bond. Once again, this is a great post. People really need to read this and step up.

    1. Thank you, man. I have a noticed a recent dip in this simple, yet very important aspect of parenting and child development. I think people have forgotten how important a book is in the life of a child. Please read to your sister. Really, anyone can read to a child and it will be just as effective. All that is required is time.

      A small sacrifice for a huge reward.
