The more books that are read to children, the more their vocabulary expands. Reading to children can introduce them to different literature they might not find on their own (Koralek). Another essential skill that children need is the ability to listen, which they learn while being read to (“Importance of Reading Aloud”). Not only does reading give children the ability to listen, it gives them the ability to understand how stories work. “The more a child knows about and experience the joys of reading before kindergarten, the easier it will be to learn to read,” (“Why Reading to Children Is Important”).

Baldwin uses his narration and analysis to realize that although he ignored his father during his childhood, he could have benefitted by learning something from his warnings. In the final sentence of the essay Baldwin writes, “I wished that he had been beside me so that I could have searched his face for the answers which only the future would give me now” (84). Baldwin realizes that through similar experiences he and his stepfather have learned much about the world. He wishes that he could still learn from his stepfather but knows that he must now rely on his future experiences.
According to Richard Allington, a professor of education at the University of Tennessee and one of the country’s most recognized experts on early literacy, highly effective teachers use six practices which make a difference in elementary reading instruction. They engage students in reading and writing authentic passages instead of wasting time on filling out many worksheets. Effective teachers provide students with texts they find interesting and they are able to read successfully. Also, teachers are involved in active instruction; they demonstrate, model and teach strategies explicitly. The exemplary teachers encourage students to ask questions and discuss their ideas with classmates; they also pose open-ended, higher-level thinking questions.
