Who knows? Your child may learn to recognize the alphabet and become familiar with rhyme scheme before crossing the threshold of preschool.
Read the book to your child two to three times (if not more) over the course of a week. It's okay to read the book multiple times a day... we actually encourage it! Try to keep the days as close to one another as possible to ensure the most successful outcome.
It’s not just about reading the selected book numerous times. You should try to follow-up each reading with one of the activities provided on this page and/or the additional resources files.
It’s just that simple!
Ask these questions as you read or after each reading. Some of the questions are open-ended which can lead to valuable discussions. Take the time to listen and respect your child’s point of view.
