Helpful tips on introducing books to your toddler.
What You Need:
• Books with colorful pictures (Board books with sturdy pages, are easy for young children to handle.)
What To Do:
1. Read books with bright, colorful pictures.
2. Talk about each picture. For example, “This whale is big. This fish is small.”
3. Before you turn the page, ask a question such as “What do you think is going to happen next?” She may not be able to answer yet, but questions encourage your child to think about what might happen next in the story.
4. When she is able to, let her turn the pages.
5. Don’t worry if your child likes to read the same books all the time. She learns by seeing and hearing things over and over.
