Read out loud to your child

Your child is too young to read yet—but he or she is
certainly not too young to have you read to him. Babies and toddlers, of any age benefit from having
books with colorful pictures shown and read out loud to them.

 

Reading to your
child acquaints him with books and develops a love for them from an early age. Here are some major
benefits of reading to your child:

  • It creates a positive learning
    atmosphere.

  • It helps keep your child busy in a positive way.
  • It helps
    stimulate thought processes in the child mind.

  • It familiarizes the child with the power
    of the letter, print, and phonetics.

Here are some tips to make reading sessions with
your child interesting and informative:

  • Ask your child questions related to the book
    being read.

  • Show pictures of things you would want the child to be acquainted
    with.

  • Allow the child to turn the pages of the book some times—this gives more control to
    the child so he is an active participant. 

  • Participate whole-heartedly in the
    session to impress upon the child that reading is an important part of
    life.
