Master Caleb Stewart, a 4-year-old boy with a passion for reading made a compelling speech about its benefits at his local middle school. In a now-viral video, Caleb grabbed the microphone and told his audience that he personally reads every day and "absolutely loves the adventure of reading," and we pretty much melted from the get-go.

The adorable little bibliophile rattled off all the good things kids can get from cracking open one of their favourite titles — and he makes some pretty inspiring points. "Reading every day has made me smarter," he said. "Reading also strengthened my vocabulary and language skills." He also pointed out that reading can improve children's long-term memory and enhance their ideas.

Master did his due diligence by reminding parents and teachers that reading aloud to kids or encourageing them to read by themselves are some of the best things they can do to help them develop. And we're not just talking about books. Caleb explained that reading newspapers, magazines, or even billboards can be just as beneficial.

The big takeaway here? Reading can open a ton of doors for kids — so keep the material coming!
