It’s never too early to start reading to your baby.
Reading is a wonderful way to communicate and bond, as well as being a fun activity for both you and your baby.
As you read, your baby will listen to you talking and is comforted by your voice and being held close to you.
Reading encourages your baby to understand the different sounds of speech, the use of language and non-verbal communication through facial expressions and gestures.
Children whose parents read books to them when they are young often learn to talk, read and write more easily.
Parents, grandparents, siblings and friends can all share in the pleasures of reading to baby, making reading a varied and enjoyable learning experience.
Have fun reading to baby during playtime, in the bath and before bedtime:
Part of baby’s daily activity and play teaching baby about sound, texture, visual stimulus and music.
Have fun splishing about with bath time books suitable for water and lots of splish splash sploshing!
Help baby understand the routine of sleep with relaxation before slumber.
