(Q29-30) Read the following paragraph carefully.
Research shows that young children who are read to on a regular basis will grow up to be better readers. When children sit in their parent’s lap and listen to stories, they are learning about the pleasures of reading and the patterns of language, which also become associated with the comfort of companionship and care. When you see children turning the pages of a book, looking at the pictures, and telling the story, often from memory, they are engaged in what is called emergent literacy. Parents can foster this early language and literacy development by talking with their children, telling them stories, reading to them every day, and surrounding them with books.

A. Parents should read to their children every day.
B. Children must learn the alphabet before they can learn to read.
