Ten Benefits of Reading
1. Children who read often and widely get better at it.

After all, practice makes perfect in almost everything humans do, and reading is no different.

2. Reading exercises our brain.

Reading is a much more complex task for the human brain rather than watching TV, for example. Reading strengthens brains connections and builds NEW connections.

3. Reading improves concentration.

Children have to sit still and quiet so that they can focus on the story when they are reading. If the read often, they will develop the skill to do this for longer.

4. Reading teaches children about the world around them.

Through reading a variety of books children learn about people, places, and events outside of their own experience.

5. Reading improves vocabulary and language skills.

Children learn new words as they read. Subconsciously, they absorb information on how to structure sentences and how to use words and other language features effectively in their writing and speaking.

6. Reading develops a child's imagination.

As we read our brains translate the descriptions we read of people, places, and things into pictures. While we are engaged in a story we are also imagining how a character is feeling. Young children then bring this knowledge into their everyday play.

7. Reading helps children to develop empathy.

As children develop they begin to imagine how they would feel in that situation.

8. Reading is a fun.

A book or an e-reader doesn't take up much space and is light to carry, so you take it anywhere so you can never be bored if you have a book in your bag.

9. Reading is a great way to spend time together.

Reading together on the sofa, bedtimes stories and visiting the library are just some ways of spending time together.

10. Children who read achieve better in school.

Reading promotes achievement in all subjects, not just English. Children who are good readers tend to achieve better across the curriculum.

Teatro Experimental Yerbabruja Inc. as Recipients of
Creatives Rebuild New York’s Artist Employment Program

We are honored and excited to share that we’ve received the Artist Employment Program (AEP) grant from Creatives Rebuild New York (CRNY). The artists Mariana Lima, Segundo Orellana, Jonathan Romero, Daniel Jimenez, and Margarita Espada will join Teatro Experimental Yerbabruja Inc. in Suffolk County, New York to work alongside the BIPOC community on the South Shore of Long Island. In this collaboration we will create murals, music, theater, creative writing, and social dialogues reflecting and giving visibility to the marginalized communities that Yerbabruja serves.

This career elevating opportunity is designed to provide employment for artists in support of a sustainable future. The program is funding 98 collaborations involving a dynamic group of 300 artists employed by community-based organizations, municipalities, and tribal governments across New York State. Teatro Yerbabruja will receive $130,000 to support the collaboration, including artists’ salaries and benefits. Our mission in Teatro Yerbabruja is to use the arts as a tool for social change. We believe that the arts and community development go hand in hand, and together create a better society.

Artist Employment Program recipients were selected through a two-stage process by a group of twenty external peer reviewers alongside CRNY staff. From an initial pool of over 2,700 written applications, 167 were shortlisted for interviews with reviewers. To view the list of 98 Artist Employment Program participants, visit https://www.creatives rebuild y.org/participants/.
