Reading Aloud

Reading aloud is a wonderful, enriching family activity at any age, so it’s a great idea to begin this activity early and carry it on throughout your little one’s childhood.

Sit together with a board book or picture book. You read the words, he points at the pictures, you turn the pages together.

Reading aloud regularly with your child holds enormous power to influence her future. Give her the chance to ask questions and comment as you read. It may be the most effective way to develop his language and thinking skills.

As your child grows and begins to be able to read to himself, he will still enjoy listening to you read books, particularly if they’re too challenging for him to read to himself.

Reading aloud allows you to share your pleasure in books with each other for many years to come.
