How to Read to Your Child
Look for books you both love: Ask friends, teachers or librarians; look for award-winning books; check book reviews; or have your children pick out their own books.
Point out objects in the pictures as you read; look for activity books that let the child participate; have your child help turn the pages.
Follow the words with your finger so your child develops a sense that the words go from left to right.
Look for repetition or rhymes in the stories.
