Early Literacy

 

Every year at the beginning of March, children all over celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss by kicking off a national reading month called “Read Across America”.  Reading to a child is a great way to bond and build a relationship with our youngest learners. As Dr. Seuss states, “You are never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.” I love that saying. Reading to our children sets them up for a lifelong love of reading. And who doesn’t like to pick up and read a good book?

 

Developing early language and literacy skills begins during utero as the parent reads, sings, and talks during pregnancy. When the child is born, those skills increase as caregivers tell stories to the baby, read books, sing lullabies, and talk while the baby is near. Zero-to-Three has a great article that gives tips on how to introduce books to babies and toddlers. Click the link to learn more.
