Through constant exposure to books📗📙 and stories🧞♂️, children begin to develop an understanding that symbols♻️can be read and interpreted by others. This promotes the concept that thoughts,💭 experiences🎭 and ideas💡can be represented through words, pictures, 🖼photos and print.
Read 📖to your child 👨👦every day – books, 📚magazines,📰 letters, and recipes – anything that reinforces the concept that written words mean something. Visit the library together and let your child choose stories to take home – or make your own book together. You could use photos or your child’s illustrations – and invite your child to dictate the text.
