A new study shows us another reason why children need naps.

The University of Arizona conducted a study that shows how naps are essential for kids to help them remember what they have just learned.

Doctors at the university investigated toddlers’ ability to learn things such as new words.

They found the toddlers remembered better after having a nap.
