Toddler Reading Tips

Toddlers love an active experience when reading. They love to lift flaps, scratch different textures, and find objects in the pictures. Books with rhyming, pattern and songs are ideal for toddlers. Have your toddler act like one of the characters in the story.

If your child won’t sit still for an entire book, that is okay! Toddlers usually have shorter attention spans than babies. Look for text that is short and simple. Read a few moments, several times a day when they are interested. You can also bring your child's activeness into the story by asking them to find a toy that is the same color/shape/object as something in the story.
