• Reading to children helps prepare them for the wonderful experience of learning to read by enriching their vocabulary and giving meaning to the printed word. If you read to your child, it won't be long before your child reads to you.  Promise!

    The best books...

    have lots of illustrations and/or 

    awesome WORD CHOICE.


    have repetitive text. 

    are predictable.

    seem to be read over and over and over again!
