By nature, humans are storytellers. We love to engage with others and share our experiences through conversation. In fact, we love stories so much that we immortalize them in book form, enjoying them and passing them along to others when we’ve turned the final page. Stories and reading form an integral part of our lives. Thus, it’s incredibly important that you teach your child to read. But how exactly should you go about it?
The early building blocks of reading are critical to helping your child become a confident, engaged reader. Early books should contain a focus on letters, phonics, and consistent recognition.
