The over-usage of tablet and mobile devices and the reliance on binge-watching TV has inhabited parenting practices. Story reading and practical activities are crying out for more attention.

Regular reading = richer fantasy?

Some sources also mention that it is easier for these children to learn to read and have better drawing skills. This can also be the result of the more advanced fantasy that the tales have.
Reading means quality time spent together
Story reading is one of the best quality pastimes a parent can do with the child. Beyond language skills and the development of fantasy, our child develops emotionally.
