* READ TOGETHER OFTEN *
When sharing a book with your child, read in short stretches, pausing often to talk about the pictures. Have your child turn the pages and point to the pictures and familiar words. Be sure to re-read favorite stories or parts of the story.
There is no right way or wrong way to share books with children. Find time to read with your child and pass on the legacy of literacy. Visit your local Library often. Let your child see you reading. Create a reading routine. Keep books where children can reach them. Take books with you everywhere. Choose and read books together with your child. Ask questions about the story.
