Reading aloud to a child before the child reaches the age of six months appears to be advantageous ...

Although it is unlikely to make much difference whether parents start reading to children at the age of two or four months, our findings indicate that reading aloud to a child before the child reaches the age of six months appears to be advantageous to the childs linguistic development. Research shows that children are sensitive to language even prenatally, yet in the first few months after a child is born, general language experiences are more likely to make a difference than reading aloud.
