Babies love to snuggle close when you look at a book together. This increases their sense of security and their bonding with you while building a love of reading.
Babies prefer bright and bold or high-contrast images that are easier for them to see. Books made of sturdy materials like board books are easier for babies to handle.
Describe what you're doing throughout the day. Narrate your actions. The more you talk with your baby, even before they can understand or respond, the more they will learning about language and the stronger their vocabulary will be.
Babies love to reread books and sing songs over and over again. This repetition is great because it strengthens their language development.
Read for a few minutes at a time whenever you can, but don't worry when their attention span wanders. Babies are learning so many things at once! Any and all reading you do with your child, even in small bursts, will help increase their language development, their positive feelings about reading with you, and their love of reading.
