While reading aloud sessions improve the literacy skills of the young learners, teachers, and parents acting as instructors also find a unique opportunity to spend quality time with their children while improving their understanding of language. In as much as the majority of the reviewed studies support the beneficial nature of reading aloud, there is a need to note that this method may not be suitable for other children across grades and age groups. The above becomes used, because, before a child can talk, reading aloud can assist in encouraging language development when performed correctly. Reading aloud also helps children when undergoing stress or tragedy because of the interaction they have with their parents or instructors. Drawing from the findings put forward by the above authors, to develop a better foundation for school success, reading aloud is essential for young children. Other factors can also directly contribute to and influence child literacy development in a similar way as the reading aloud. However, the findings of Wright (2019) suggest that this development is often neglected since children have grown past primary grades. In agreement, the findings of Trelease (2013) suggest that reading aloud assists children in gaining early language skills and has been recognized as an important event with a positive effect on language development among children.
