Print Awareness

My Book BoxPrint Awareness means learning about books and print.  When children are young, they treat books as they would any other toy.  This means they put them in their mouths, explore them by pushing and pulling, and become interested in the pictures.  Keep some books in your child’s toy box.  Let your child handle the books and talk about what you see in the pictures.  This will help your child develop print awareness.
