We know you want the best for your child, and we invite you to begin a parenting practice which will benefit your child the rest of his or her life—reading with your child at home 20 minutes a day from birth through elementary school. Children whose parents read with them learn to read well and are typically proficient readers by third grade. It’s as simple as that! This section suggests age appropriate activities and books for your baby, toddler and preschool child. It also summarizes how your school-age child learns to read. And you’ll find suggestions of books to enjoy with your child during the early years of elementary school.
