The most important thing we can do to nurture our little ones is to talk with them. Let them hear our voice reading aloud to build lots of brain connections. Plus, reading aloud helps to connect and bond with our babies. ~ Growing Book By Book
Read with your child and keep track of the titles of the books that you or others have read with your child.
Keep a record of what you are reading using our convenient reading log sheets or by whatever method you want.
