The Herald Sun 26 July 2012Children whose parents regularly read to them when they are young are likely to perform better in NAPLAN, a landmark study says. The Australian Institute of Family Studies surveyed thousands of children and found that solid foundations for reading at the ages of four and five was linked to higher literacy scores. Mini-bookworms who were read to often, surrounded by books at home and visited the library, were the best off, researchers Killian Mullan and Galina Daraganova found. While the study dealt with children aged four and up, experts say parents can start on the path to developing literacy skills from birth. The research used data from a longitudinal study of nearly 5000 children, using time-diaries when they were aged 4-5 and then 10-11.http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/national/good-readers-make-better-students/story-fndo317g-1226433267615
