The reviewed sources also revealed that the use of reading aloud exposes the children to rare words and conversations that may not exist in schools. The outcomes of the study, ‘Promoting resilience through read-aloud’ carried out by Lacina et al. (2016) posit that during reading aloud, especially through the television and radio, the children pay attention, which is an opportunity to practice listening, which will lead to improved literacy levels. The relationship between parents and children is very important for child literacy growth. Read aloud sessions may act as the right time to bond at the same time affect the children’s emotions especially when the parents are demanding or not understanding which may end up affecting the children. In agreement, Ledger and Merga (2018) explain that parents, teachers, or literacy instructors should pay close attention to children during the read-aloud session to ensure they are comfortable. The factors should be established and categorized separately to ensure the reading aloud strategies are successful. Gambrell and Almasi (1996) further complement these propositions, noting that this technique enables parents to assist children in ensuring that once they start schooling, they have a high chance of reading comprehension. The review of past studies suggests that there is a lower possibility of dropping out of schools, school failure, and chances of absenteeism among other negative issues which reduces poverty level in societies.
