Ripping Books

Reading is important, even for young children. It allows parents and children to enjoy a quiet moment of sharing while also building vocabulary and general early literacy skills.

It’s also not unusual for a toddler to try to rip a book! This is an opportunity to gently and consistently teach your child about how to read books appropriately.

If trying to rip the books continues to be a concern, invest in (or borrow from the library) some board books, which are nearly impossible to tear.

Also, think about finding the right time to sit down and enjoy a book together. Many parents find that after a bath, before bed, after a nap or some other quiet time is best for suggesting a story together with their child.
