Benefits of reading to your baby
Reading to my baby: why is it important?
Wondering when to start reading to your baby? It’s never too early for storytime.
From chewing the pages of cardboard baby books to independent reading, books are a big part of childhood. Sharing books with your mini gives them a headstart with language, too.
Here are some top tips for reading to your little one.
Books for newborns to 6 months
Toddler books at age 3
Choose books that prepare your little one for important milestones. Look out for stories about potty training, getting ready for school or making new friends. Brace yourself to read their favourite story over and over – keep smiling as you read baby books for the thousandth time, because repetition is how they learn.
They'll eventually memorise the story and tell it to you instead – or their bound-to-be-cute version of it.
