“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”— Dr. Seuss
Let's Play! Activity: Reading Routine
Begin a reading routine with your child at an early age. Choose a cozy spot and time of day that works well for you and your child and cuddle up with a book. Beginning early is important because the roots of language are developing in a baby’s brain even before he can talk! The more words your baby hears over time, the more words he learns. Guess what, you don't have to read the story, your baby will learn if you simply label and point to familiar pictures in the book! As they get older, you can begin to ask questions and listen for a response. Such as, "Where is the bumble bee in the picture?"
