He tries to put some time aside every evening to read to the kids.

What does the "to read" mean here?

Please help me.

Thank you Dominik

I know it. I meant I wanted to know the meaning of "read" in this context. If the "kids" were a book name, I could understand it as, "She wanted to read the book "kids". But I think it is not a book name, it is really a kids. So I am confused. Does the read here mean "teach" ?

Imagine you had a three-year-old daughter and a four-year-old son. They can't read, but they love fairy tales.
What would you, as a loving father, do? Wouldn't you open the book and read it aloud so that they could hear your voice telling them new beautiful stories every evening?
