Children Who Are Read to at a Young Age Will Have Bigger Vocabularies

Children Who Are Read to at a Young Age Will Have Bigger Vocabularies The study, published in the Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, collected 60 popular kids books.

They then counted the words in all of them.

They found that books targeted towards infants had an average of 140 words.

Books for toddlers had 228.

After calculations, the team says if just one book is read to a child on a daily basis they will know hundreds of thousands more words than kids who aren't read to once they reach kindergarten.

The team from Ohio State University says just one book is needed to teach a child nearly 300,000 new words.

They will know 1.4 million more words if they are read five books.
