Print Awareness

Tops and BottomsYoung children can begin to learn that a book must be held a certain way in order to understand the print (and to follow the pictures). In the book Tops and Bottoms by Janet Stevens, the text of the story requires the reader to hold the book completely sideways!

Books are Conversation Starters

I Like BugsOnce in a while, instead of reading the text in a board book as it is written, use the text in the book as a conversation starter. Adding new words that your child might not otherwise hear can be a great way to help his or her vocabulary grow. Good readers know lots of words!
