When preschool-age children are exposed to book reading ...

„When preschool-age children are exposed to book reading, they develop the understanding of vocabulary that is not commonly used in daily oral interactions. This oral comprehension will assist them in comprehending what they will read by themselves later. […] When parents engage in shared reading with their kindergarten children, they informally teach them vocabulary words because interactions during storybook reading revolve around discussing the meaning of print. […] Reading frequently to preschool children in the home, in particular, can contribute to give them the skills they need to be successful in school.“
