As for children, Learning to read is about listening and understanding as wellas working out what is printed on the page. Through hearing stories, childrenare exposed to a wide range of words. This helps them build their ownvocabulary and improve their understanding when they listen, which is vital asthey start to read. It is important for them to understand how stories worktoo.

Readingis a complex process that involves working on the information in a text on anumber of levels. The successful reader, able to not just decode, but tounderstand and interact with text, operates on text at the word, sentence, content, topic (Munro, J.,2004).
Students, who have reading difficulties, have not developed all thenecessary knowledge and reading strategies needed for them to access theselevels of text and need explicit teaching intervention to help them make senseof the text. Poor readers do not acquire strategies automatically and needexplicit instructions (Gee, H. 1998). Most peopleexperienced difficulties with reading accuracy and the problems is from not being able tobridge the gap between decoding and comprehension.
They presented difficultieswith knowledge and strategies at the word and sentence levels. Consequently,the amount of information they could hold and process was very small. Whentheir information processing was this slow, they were less likely to retain andprocess the words they had interpreted,resulting in poor fluency and comprehension.
