TIPS FOR SUCCESS
*Read aloud to children several times a day.
*When you are reading to your child, allow him/her to actively participate. Let him/her point to pictures and words and help turn the pages.
*Have books in every room of the house.
*Label things around the house such as cabinets, appliances, lamps, furniture, doors, etc.
*Talk to children and encourage them to communicate, whether it is gurgles from a baby or questions from a 4-year-old.
*Have lots of ABC activities such as magnets for the refrigerator, foam letters for the bathtub, and puzzles.
*Allow children to look through magazines and newspapers.
*Let your children see you reading.
