- Read a variety of books. Reading aloud develops your baby’s vocabulary, listening and comprehension skills, as well as encouraging a love of reading and a familiarity with books. Read books with colorful pictures and interactive storyline that will keep your baby's attention such as board books.
- Use books as part of your baby’s daily routines. Read before naptime, bedtime or bath time. Read a story while you are waiting at the doctor’s office to keep your baby occupied while you wait.
