My experience reading with my child is Joyful. I love the snuggle time and seeing how happy and excited he gets when I ask him to read together. I never enjoyed reading as a child so I’m excited to see that he does.
Let your infant know you’re listening. Whether it’s babbles, cries or goo-goos, repeat the sounds back to her. Smile. When you respond, she’s learning that what she “says” – and communication in general — is important.
