Texas, CA, April 27, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Reveal Dental, a Cedar Park dental practice is among the proud sponsors of the "Books for Babies" program. Donations from the Cedar Park dental office, and other local businesses will allow the program to meet its goal of providing a book to every newborn at Cedar Park Regional Medical Center.
Over the last decade, researchers and pediatricians conducted several large experiments to study the link between parents who read to their children at an early age, and the literacy skills of those children. The research showed improved reading, visual recognition, and language skills for all children involved, with significant results for children as young as newborns.
The Leadership Cedar Park Class of 2015-2016, inspired by the results, paired with the national "Books for Babies" program to bring books to parents of newborns at the Cedar Park Regional Medical Center.
Many new parents are unaware of the benefits of reading to their newborn, and the "Books for Babies" program seeks to educate parents. Program volunteers present the parents with a special book for the baby, as well as a library card that the parents can use to expand the child's literary exposure. In addition to the book and card, parents also receive information about the impact of reading to babies.
The program highlights the development of verbal skills that are necessary for children when they enter kindergarten and first grade. Reading to the child as a baby jump starts his or her development, so the child enters school with a solid foundation of language on which to build. It is also another opportunity for bonding between parents and their child as they share a special moment reading a book together.
