Tips for developing strong readers

Starting at 6 months old read to your child everyday

Point to the words as you read in books and in your environment

Read your child’s favorite book over and over

Pick stories that have rhyming and repetition

Discuss new words and things that happen in the story

Talk about the pictures in the story

Read a variety of types of books, fairytales, poems, fiction, nonfiction, etc.

Talk to your baby and child as frequently as possible

Set a good example and read every day in front of your child

Set a time limit for electronic usage and stick to it.
