Who else loves this #LibrariesTransform stat? It is unanimous! 5 of 5 doctors (100%) agree that Reading Aloud to Children supports brain development! With increased recognition that an important part of brain development occurs within the first three years of a child’s life, and that reading to children enhances vocabulary and other important communication skills, the American Academy of Pediatrics issued a policy statement (see it here: http://bit.ly/2Pfy9Kc) in 2014 asking its members to become advocates for reading aloud, every time a baby visits the doctor. #YorkCountyLibraries #1000BooksB4k
