Why 20 Minutes?

According to ABC Life Literacy Canada there are many important reasons that you should set aside 20 minutes a day to read:

  • Improve vocabulary: children, youth and adults who read for 20 minutes per day are exposed to 1.8 million words a year.
  • Quality family time: reading together for 20 minutes provides valuable bonding time which can help form strong relationships.
  • Increase your happiness: Learning gives people a sense of purpose and accomplishment that lead to a happier more fulfilling life. Adult learning is said to improve optimism and self-worth by eight per cent.
  • Improve your memory: Your memory makes connections between what you already know about the topic of the story and its content. Reading has been linked to slowing mental decline by improving overall mental flexibility, an important component to developing and retaining memory.
