The aim of the Finnish Reading Center’s Read Aloud initiative is to encourage the parents of small children to read aloud to them.
Reading aloud regularly boosts children’s vocabulary, supports their emotional development and has a major influence on their future literacy and school performance. Reading aloud is one of the key factors in boosting the equality between children and families, regardless of their social or economic background.
The campaign provides parents, educators and other adults hands-on information, hints and reading suggestions for children of all age groups. A parents’ guide is currently available in sixteen languages.
