reading for tots- Book Reviews by ZenParent

It’s never too early to start reading to your child. Toddlers especially enjoy being read to. They sit in rapt attention as they quietly take in everything as you turn the pages. Even when they cannot speak at all, it is amazing how much they take in and actually remember! One of the greatest rewards of reading to your toddler is when they suddenly blurt out a word that you did not know they knew! And they NEVER get tired of reading the same book again and again to the point where both of you have memorized it!
