A language experience approach to reading is considered a natural program for early childhood education for the following reasons:
*It provides a sound and positive foundation for early learning experiences.
*It creates a context for self-development through direct experiences that are familiar and important to the learner
*It fosters affective and cognitive development by permitting the learner to experience himself while he is discovering important things about learning.
*It permits each learner to progress in his or her own way, at his or her own rate.
*It promotes self-expression experiences as an integral part of the communication process.
*It facilitates a sense of togetherness between adults and children
*It draws on the existing resources and talents of adults and children
*It costs little and contributes significantly to early development
*It makes reading a meaningful and purposeful experience for young children
