Play can help children develop their imagination. When they pretend and imagine things, they’re becoming creative thinkers. That’s a great tool for problem-solving in school and in life. Imagination can also help children with reading comprehension.
If children can picture what’s happening as they read, they’ll understand the stories better. Kids of all ages and abilities can benefit from pretend play.
