Baby book time

Reading to your baby helps to stimulate their brain

Looking at books together is a fun activity and good for your baby’s future. This is a great activity to do even before your baby can read. Here’s how to enjoy baby book time:

  • Find a quiet place
  • Read the words and talk about the pictures
  • Give your baby time to respond
  • Repeat your baby’s words
  • Don’t read for too long, and stop when your baby gets bored

Babies like looking at the patterns and colours in picture books, so this is a good activity to keep them happy on a rainy afternoon indoors.

Good to know

Reading together will help your baby to concentrate and enhance their memory and listening skills.
