      All kids (toddlers 3-6 and older) love a story. Is there a difference between presenting the story via a video, an audio tape, or by reading to them in a way that the child views the book’s illustrations while being read to? A recent study compared these methods and found that the latter is significantly superior in terms of aiding development of a child’s thinking capacity. For the details of this study and the results, please read the following article and its links. Your comments/opinions will be welcome.
