“Children whose homes are filled with books don’t just have the fun of being read to. They also enjoy the benefits years later.
A study has found that if just ten children’s books are to hand when a child is four, a part of their brain involved in language and thought matures more quickly by the age of 18 or 19.
However, if introduced at the age of eight, these books … seem to have little impact on the brain, suggesting the age of four is a critical time in its development.
The research has excited scientists because it the first to show how small differences in a normal upbringing affect the brain.”
