Literacy is a term that includes reading, writing, speaking, and listening - and it is the foundation of a child's learning process. The best way to build literacy skills is to read to your child every day, starting in infancy.
Your baby will love listening to the tone and rhythm of your voice and looking at pictures in a story book. In turn, books expose your child to vocabulary, word use, and picture identification - all of which encourage language development.
By reading to your child regularly starting at an early age, you will give your child a strong foundation for future learning that will help set him up for success in school - and in life!
