„The size of the effects of parental reading to children on the reading and other cognitive skills of their children is substantial. As indicated before, comparing it to the effect of being older in age, reading on 3-5 days per week to boys has a similar effect as being just under half a year older, whereas reading on 6-7 days per week has a similar effect as being just under one year older. For girls the effects are slightly larger relative to age than for boys, comparing to just over half a year increase in age and just over one year increase in age respectively.“
