Board books are the best when it comes to bright and colorful pictures. Choosing books with bright and colorful pictures is very important to get your child interested in books and reading. Reading aloud to your baby is a very important activity. Reading aloud provides your baby with stimulation. Studies have shown the following benefits of reading aloud:
- teaches a baby about how to communicate
- is a great way to introduce new concepts such as letters, numbers, colors, and shapes
- helps to build listening, memory, and vocabulary skills
By the time babies reach their first birthday, some early child development scholars believe that babies will have learned all the sounds needed to speak. The more stories you read aloud, the more words your child will be exposed to will greatly benefit your child.
