The answer is ”YES”. Start reading to your baby early, from birth if you like. Sharing stories, talking and singing help your baby’s development in many ways.
Doing these activities every day helps your baby get familiar with sounds, words, language and, eventually, the value and joy of books. This all builds babies’ early literacy skills and helps them go on to read successfully later in life.
Reading stories also stimulates babies’ imagination and helps them learn about the world around them. It’s a great time for you to bond with your baby and share time together too.
Babies enjoy books that have good rhymes, rhythm and repetition.
