Research shows that the number of different words a baby hears each day is the single most important predictor of later intelligence, school success and social competence.
Reading with Babies, Toddlers and Twos is a fun, interactive guide for parents on what to read, when to read and how to read to children ages zero to three—answering all of the questions of parents, expectant parents and grandparents who wander through the bookstore scanning the shelves:
— What do you buy after you’ve bought Goodnight Moon?
— Why should I read to a baby who doesn’t even know she has feet?
— How am I going to read to a baby who just found his feet—and won’t stop trying them out?
— How often should I read to my baby to make sure she’s ready for preschool?
Reading with Babies, Toddlers and Twos is the definitive answer to reading with baby—beginning when she’s still in the womb!
