EVERYDAY TIPS

  • It's never too early for books and reading! Even very young babies love hearing stories and looking at pictures.
  • Set aside a special time for reading. Nightly bedtime stories work well for many families, but any time of day is good. Just find a cozy spot and get started.
  • Find favorites. Many children love to hear the same stories over and over. It comforts them and helps develop language skills.
  • Visit your local library. Libraries offer an array of free programs and resources—from books to story times and family literacy workshops.
