Filling an infant, toddler, or preschooler’s day with fun, engaging activities requires a lot of know-how. The first year is all about connecting and communicating, even if it seems like it’s a one-way conversation.
How does literacy fit into the day of a fidgety, squirmy toddler? The answer: very carefully.
Talk with your toddler, even when the only word you hear back is “no”
Your toddler’s busy, so pack the schedule with brain-building activities
Read with your toddler at least three times per week (if you can get them to sit!)
