Read to Your Baby

Think your baby is too young to be introduced to reading?Not at all!Reading to your baby helps your baby become familiar with books and sets the stage for your baby to learn how to read. Children who are read to when they are very young are more ready to learn to read when they start school. When you are reading to your baby, it is more important to focus on the sound of words, rather than the meaning of the words.Select books with rhymes, songs, and interesting sounds. Books with animal sounds are always fun. You can make the animal sounds together.
