and medical information. If a child doesn’t learn to read, he/she won’t be able
to absorb written information easily.
With the birth of the internet, came endless
opportunities for reading. At one-time there was a perception the internet
would be the death of books. Thankfully that prediction proved wrong. The

connection a child has while reading a physical book.
