How to Raise a Reader


Music and Media Reading Apps


Toddlers and Preschoolers will love interactive book apps as well as letter recognition, literacy, and language skills apps which provide a great foundation for reading. As you and your toddler go through the “pages” of this electronic pop-up book, you will enjoy hearing animal sounds, and discover fun surprises as you touch the various objects in the illustrations. Individual words are also pronounced with the touch of the finger. Electronic book apps can provide a good foundation for book knowledge such as reading from left to right or where to read on a page. Other literacy apps provide letter sounds, letter recognition, rhyming, alphabetic knowledge, listening and comprehension skills, book enjoyment and knowledge and writing skills.
