Print Awareness

Lola at the LibraryBefore children can learn to read, they need to know how to handle a book. This involves knowing how to turn the pages, as well as understanding that what you read is the text on the page and not the pictures. Call attention to these things as you are reading, without getting in the way of the story too much. This is called print awareness.
