“Reading is a vehicle for gaining knowledge, but it’s also a vehicle for developing vocabulary. If there is one thing that we as parents can do is we can set up an environment in which language is key. And that we set up conditions in which our kids are immersed in language, immersed in vocabulary, because we’re a highly verbal society. We’re judge sadly, from the moment we open up our mouth, the more articulate we are, the more we’re going to be able to succeed in life. And that’s just that’s just a given. So reading is a vehicle for that now.”
