12-24 months

At this exciting time, your baby will be learning to say words and walk. This is a good time to ask your baby lots of questions and support them in choosing toys and games.


At this age, a baby may be able to say as many as 20 words, and they’ll understand even more than they can say.



As your baby builds their vocabulary, reading can help them on their way. They can start to understand stories, improve their memory and their listening skills.
