A book is a babys first theatre and now US paediatricians are urging parents to read to children from their earliest days. Even the smallest babies are ready and eager to engage and tune into what is being read to them.
Being able to read is a vital life skill, so make the early stages of learning the alphabet as fun as possible for your little ones. Young children learn and develop best through using their whole body, all of their senses and their natural environments. Youll find that most children begin to recognise letters when theyre about 2-3 years old, and are able to identify a large number of letters between 4 and 5 years old.
