When your baby starts trying to use words by asking for things with gestures, looks or babbles, help him find the word by naming whatever he’s asking for. “Oh, you want your truck? Here’s your yellow truck…”
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.
