It’s not just reading, it’s talking, too

The top 3 tips for teaching toddlers:

  • Ask questions.
  • Respond to their answers.
  • Praise them for a job well done!

Make the story real.

  • Extend the reading experience, and help your children make connections between the story and their lives.  For example, after reading Harold and the Purple Crayon, give you child a purple crayon to draw with. Read I Went Walking, then take a walk and talk about the things you see together.
