The science of helping preschool readers

CNN Health offers tips from The National Institute for Literacy on engaging early readers.

Sandee LaMotte writes (excerpt):
1) Start from birth by talking to your child and responding to their attempts to “baby talk”
2) Sing the ABC song
3) Have your child use their imagination and make up stories — and ask lots of questions about those invented tales
4) Pick books with interesting characters — and don’t be afraid to role play with different accents and voices for the characters
5) Have your child point to pictures and words and repeat them
6) Most important — enjoy yourself!
