Baby Reading Tips

Babies enjoy bright and bold books with contrasting illustrations. Board books, cloth, and bath books are especially good for babies because they put everything in their mouths. Singing the lines in a book is a great way to read with a baby.

Keep books in areas of your home where your baby can safely reach them. As your child reaches 6 months, they will love to help you turn the pages and lift the book over his or her head. Babies and young children learn through repetition, so don’t be afraid to read and reread the same book often.
