Reading improves vocabulary. when we read, we come across many new words we never really heard of. We learn from words like these. As you read, you come across new words, phrases, and writing styles. This is even more so for young people. People sometimes stumble over their words, do not know how to pronounce them or what they mean. By reading, young people encounter new words more frequently and sometimes repetitively and therefore can see them better in their context.
Reading forms pictures in the brain and improves imagination and like Albert Einstein said imagination is better than knowledge. Reading expands imagination because of all the different thoughts authors and illustrators put in a book. They could put wacky weird crazy and serious thoughts into a book. Kids could get a lot of thoughts from that and could write even their own books. Imagination mostly helps you with fiction books but some kids like Albert Einstein have become great people like engineers, authors even celebrities.
Reading sometimes even improves creativity it could be an art book, a book about bridges, a book about how to make a paper boat etc: Creativity gives you good things you could come up with code or strategy you could figure out on a problem that was never made before. Creativity and imagination are good you get those by reading.
