Child reading


Reading together is the single most important way to help children get ready to read.

Shared reading increases vocabulary and knowledge about the world, and it helps children learn about written language. It also helps children learn to love books.

  • Read together every day. Bring books with you to the doctor’s office, on the bus and wherever you go.

  • Ask your child questions about the book and let your child turn the pages.

  • Talk about the pictures in books. Wordless books are fun to share.
