"Children who are read to by their parents are exposed to a wide range of vocabulary; they develop an internal sense of story and understand that reading is a process of getting meaning from written symbols. Perhaps most importantly, children who are read to are provided with the best role model for reading Ė their parents. Children understand that reading is something their parents value and that has functional utility (Rasinski, 344)."
