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 toddler:

  • It creates a positive learning atmosphere.

  • It helps keep your child busy in a positive way.

  • It helps stimulate thought processes in the child’s 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.
