Getting kids ready to read doesn’t have to be difficult. Even the youngest babies are primed to learn. Share cloth or board books with high contrast pictures, books with faces, or books with interactive aspects (touch and feel books, or lift the flap books). Most of these books can be enjoyed in ten minutes or less. Share nursery rhymes and silly songs with babies. Use different voices and sounds for each character. Don’t worry if your child wants to read the same book over and over again! If she enjoys one book, she can learn to enjoy others!Read more
