It’s important for parents to talk to their children as much as possible. From infancy, this has many benefits. It can help develop a child’s phonemic awareness (the ability to hear and identify sounds in spoken words). Children can learn words more easily when they hear them spoken often—and that’s why conversation and reading skills go hand in hand.
You should introduce your children to the written word early on. Reading familiar stories like The Very Hungry Caterpillar can give children practice reading comfortably using books that they already know.
Incorporating play into the reading process can help children enjoy it even more. Using the Zoobie Pet while you read the book can really make the story come alive for your child.
