What research has to say about children’s books and stories

  • Have the power to ignite children’s imaginations
  • Allow children to try out new vocabulary and build confidence in speaking
  • Encourage interactions and communication
  • Support children with their own storytelling and role play
  • Teach about the world, they allow children to step into someone else’s shoes and feel empathy
  • Help children to relax and escape
  • Develop essential literacy skills.
  • Promote engagement with environmental issues. For example, those who read environmental books are more likely to want to take care of the environment compared with those who don't read.
