Reading needs to be encouraged in the early years of a child’s development. Multi-lingual children may have challenges focusing on a single language. The simplest way of facilitating reading is to provide lots of books.
Children often learn by mimicking adults. So when you read for your child, they will eventually mimic your actions by attempting to do the same. Older siblings often do this by reading aloud for their younger siblings.
The ability to read forms a foundation for a child to gain access to knowledge from books and other media.
