Read- There is no question that books are an important tool in early development but “read” can refer to a variety of experiences with a book or other printed material. For a busy baby or toddler learning to open, close and turn the pages of a board book as you comment briefly on the pictures you happen to glance at together is a good start. Creating a homemade book with photos and names of family members, pets, favourite toys or characters may hold the child’s attention to images as well as help them to learn names of familiar people and objects. Pointing out pictures and print throughout a child’s environment as you describe the images and words you see to your child creates numerous opportunities to develop an awareness of print and grow your child’s vocabulary. Conveniently placing children’s books in a various rooms throughout the house, in the car, purse or diaper bag makes this practice easier by having reading materials readily available.
