Health Tip of the Day

How to Read to Your Child

  • Look for books you both love: Ask friends, teachers or librarians; look for award-winning books; check book reviews; or have your children pick out their own books.

  • Point out objects in the pictures as you read; look for activity books that let the child participate; have your child help turn the pages.

  • Follow the words with your finger so your child develops a sense that the words go from left to right.

  • Read slowly.

  • Look for repetition or rhymes in the stories.
