booksFrom the time our kids are able to hear us read (basically from within the womb) they should be exposed to the beauty of childhood stories.  Even more so when they are in this World, stories and books can inspire and promote a healthy imagination.  Without imagination, nothing new would ever be conceived or created!

Our language, and particularly in the form of the written word, is the foundation on which we relate to each other.

I have personally been a strong reader, for as long as I can remember, and still read many hours each week.  It is a constant, part of my success in all areas of my life.

Reading Is Important!

From time to time people have wondered why reading is so important. There seems so many other things to do with one’s time.

We will look at some of the fundamental reasons reading is important, but it is important to realize that struggling with vital reading skills is not a sign a low intelligence. For example, John Corcoran, who wrote The Teacher Who Couldn’t Read, is a very intelligent man. He graduated from High School and College, became a popular High School teacher and later a successful businessman all without being able to read. Many highly intelligent people have struggled with reading although, when properly taught, most people can learn to read easily and quickly.

Now, if a man like John Corcoran can succeed without reading, why is reading important? A person should really read Mr. Corcoran’s story to appreciate the feeling of shame, loneliness and fear that he experienced before he learned to read. He was able to succeed in spite of this major handicap because he was a man of intelligence, ability and determination. But, make no mistake, it was a handicap that made life harder and less enjoyable.

So, Why IS Reading Important?

1. Reading is fundamental to function in today’s society. There are many adults who cannot read well enough to understand the instructions on a medicine bottle. That is a scary thought -, especially for their children. Filling out applications becomes impossible without help. Reading road or warning signs is difficult. Even following a map becomes a chore. Day-to-day activities that many people take for granted become a source of frustration, anger, and fear.

2. Reading is a vital skill in finding a good job. Many well-paying jobs require reading as a part of job performance. There are reports and memos which must be read and responded to. Poor reading skills increase the amount of time it takes to absorb information and respond in the workplace. A person is limited in what they can accomplish without good reading and comprehension skills.

3. Reading is important because it develops the mind. The mind is like a muscle, it needs exercise. Understanding the written word is one way the mind grows in its capabilities. Teaching young children to read helps them develop their language skills. It also helps them learn to listen. Everybody wants to talk, but few can really listen. Lack of listening skills can result in major misunderstandings which can lead to job loss, marriage breakup, and other disasters. Reading helps children [and adults] focus on what someone else is communicating.

4. Why is reading important? It is how we discover new things. Books, magazines and even the Internet are great learning tools which require the ability to read and understand the written word. A person who knows how to read can educate themselves in any area in which they are interested. We live in an age where we are overloaded with information, but reading is the main way to take advantage of it.books

 Reading Develops The Imagination

5. Reading develops the imagination. TV and computer games have their place, but because of their interaction they are more amusement than truly reading. Amusement comes from two words “a” [non] and “muse” [think]. Amusement is non-thinking activities. With reading, a person can go anywhere in the world…or even out of it! They can be a king, or an adventurer, or a princess, or… The possibilities are endless. Non-readers do not experience these joys to the same extent.

6. Reading develops the creative side of people. When reading to children, stop every once in awhile and ask them what they think is going to happen next.  Prompt them to think about the story. When it is finished, ask if they could think of a better ending or anything that would have improved it. If they really liked the story, encourage them to illustrate it with their own drawings or to make up a different story with the same characters. Get the creative juices flowing!

Reading Is Fundamental

7. Reading is fundamental in developing a good self-image. Nonreaders or poor readers often have low opinions of themselves and their abilities. Many times they feel as if the world is against them. They feel isolated [everybody else can read – which isn’t true] and behavior problems can surface. They often perform poorly in other subjects because they cannot read and understand the material and so tend to “give up.”

8. Good reading skills, especially in a phonics reading program, improve spelling. As students learn to sound out letters and words, spelling comes easier. Also, reading helps to expand the vocabulary. Reading new words puts them in your mind for later use. Seeing how words are used in different contexts can give a better understanding of the word usage and definitions

9. The power of written ideas communicated through reading is a fundamental reason why some governments oppose free and honest communication. Illiterate people are easier to control and manipulate. They cannot do their own research and investigations. They must rely on what they are told and often how their emotions are swayed.

Reading Really Is Important

11. Finally, one more time, why is reading important? Reading is important because words – spoken and written – are the building blocks of life. You are, right now, the result of words that you have heard or read AND believed about yourself. What you become in the future will depend on the words you believe about yourself now. People, families, relationships, and even nations are built from words. Think about it.

According to Jonathan Kozol in “Illiterate America,” quoted in “The Teacher Who Couldn’t Read,'” the three main reasons people give for wanting to read are:

books1. To read the Bible,
2. To read books and newspapers, and
3. To help their children.

If you like a topic, or a Movie Series, you should dive into the books.  Books allow for so much more development of the Story, the plots, and the characters.  If you love it on the big screen, you’ll more than love it when you read.
