Julie Piazza-King, Director, Family Life Child Care Program, on How to Read to Very Young Children
Teaching our infants and toddlers to read and to enjoy reading will help them be successful in their future. Early reading promotes early literacy by establishing a solid foundation for learning literacy skills. It helps children understand that words in a book have meaning and therefore increases a child's vocabulary. Furthermore, it instills the notion that reading is something that is fun, and fosters a life-long love for reading.
