Early Literacy Tip of the Month!
Read to your baby!
Let your baby hold and play with books. Cloth and board books are great for little hands
Use silly voices when you read, and soon your baby will begin to make silly sounds too. Encourage every coo, gurgle and growl.
Point at pictures and say the names of objects out loud. Your baby will listen and learn the importance of language.
Hold your baby on your lap while you read, and make eye contact.
Your baby loves your voice, your touch and your face.
