Book Lists

According to reading expert Jim Trelease, "If a child is old enough to talk to he or she is old enough to read to."

Studies have shown that kids whose parents read to them early have longer attention spans, stronger vocabularies and are likely to be early readers themselves.

From birth to six months of age, what you read is not important. "Conditioning" your child to the sound of your voice and the sight of books is what matters. The human voice is one of the most powerful tools a parent has for calming a child.
