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.
