Choosing books

Give your child a chance to choose his own books. If your toddler chooses a book that is too long to hold his attention, read some and skip some, discussing the pictures and how they relate to the story.

Choosing children’s books

Choose children’s books with large print words and extremely clear pictures. This will help your child to understand what they are seeing and to learn to read words.

Choose engaging books

Books featuring animals or machines invite movement and making sounds. Books with flaps or different textures to touch keep hands busy.

Books with detailed illustrations or recurring items hidden in the pictures are great for exploring and discussing.
