Psychologists have proven that confidence, independence and positive awareness is rooted in a child’s ability to read. As an extension, reading promotes maturity, increased discipline and sound judgement through deeper understanding. Reading provides the tools for a child to satisfy their curiosity, especially when exposed to books that explain, while encouraging problem-solving techniques. World-renowned children’s author, Teresa Schapansky in her books “Along The Way”, incorporates this perfect balance that strengthens, encourages, challenges and educates children. It instills in children the desire to learn more about people, places and ideas, while piquing a child’s curiosity and leads them to want to engage.

Science has also proven that different reading environments bring different reactions and stimulate different parts of the brain, while a classroom setting encourages children to share.
