  2. Expands vocabulary – Most books will teach him new words, colors, shapes, numbers, objects and feelings
  3. Helps stimulate the brain and spend time off electronics and get lost in the world of reading
  4. Helps them sleep easier and is great for bonding and connection
  5. Lets them dream big and show them what is and can be possible

  10. Fuels their imagination to help them make stories of their own.
