Tip

When you enjoy a book, let your children know that you like it and why. Sharing your enjoyment gives them a positive attitude toward books. This positive attitude will influence them when they get to school and learn to read. Let your child choose books and tell you why he likes them.

- Lambert

Activity

Spice up a familiar book by talking about why it’s a favorite of your child’s. Talk about the art, the words, and prompt your child to share.
