Words All Around

Toddler Anytime Anywhere

Your child learns best from what you say and do, so read everything you can out loud. Read signs outside, recipes, or ads in a paper or magazine. Be sure to point at what you’re reading too. Do they imitate any of your words or sounds? Do they point, too? Go back and forth with them, pointing and reading out loud.

See what your child is learning

Introducing your child to different things to read helps them make the earliest connections between written words and what they stand for. These kind of back and forth chats, even before they have words, build their communication skills too.
