Reading and talking about what you are reading is very important for your baby. It is also a special time when you can both enjoy being together as you read aloud and turn the pages. As you do this, you are helping your baby to learn words and to understand what they mean. And you’re showing your baby that books and reading are fun. Singing, saying and reading nursery rhymes are also very important. Remember, it is never too early to develop an interest in and love of reading. The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment have developed a lovely tip sheet for parents with a list of suggested books to read and enjoy together, follow the link and take a look.
