Health Tip: Encourage Your Toddler to Read

Health Tip: Encourage Your Toddler to Read

04/12/13

(HealthDay News) -- Reading is a key part of a youngster's learning and development, and parents can take steps to help children foster a lifelong love of reading.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests how to help toddlers get the most from their reading time:

  • Cuddle up in a comfortable, quiet spot to read together.
  • Work on pronunciation by noting words that your child pronounces incorrectly.
  • Read slowly to help your child understand what's happening in the book.
  • Use reading time as a way to help soothe, comfort and calm your child when he or she is upset.
