Lets look at books together

25 May, 2022

You can help your little one start to be interested in books anytime, even if they aren’t ready to read or look at a whole story yet. Instead of reading the words, why not try:

Finding a book about something they already like. For example, put a book about transport near their toy cars in case it might interest them.

Talk about the pictures. Whatever your little one looks at on the page, tell them what it is.

Make your own book about your child using photos or drawings. Seeing themselves and the people they know in a homemade book might make it more exciting to look at the story.

Use funny voices for characters to make it really fun and exciting.
