Reading To Your Baby

Reading books to little ones is so important!  Here are some tips for making baby reading time important.

  • Choose books that have rhythm
  • Black and White colors will keep their attention and focus
  • Read the same book over and over for familiarity of sound and understanding
  • Choose to read at a routine time as reading can aid in bedtime routine or even helping develop coping skills
  • Board books are great because they can touch, feel, and even chew on them and they are okay
  • Let your little one turn the pages as they get older.  Again board books are great for this
  • Enjoy your time with you little one.  Remember reading may last for a moment but the love and time you shared will make an impact forever.

  1. We like books by brainy baby. They are bright and colorful and catch baby's attention.
