Health Tip: Encourage Your Toddler to Read
(HealthDay News) -- Reading is a key part of a youngster's learning and development, and parents can take steps to help children foster a lifelong love of reading.
The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests how to help toddlers get the most from their reading time:
Cuddle up in a comfortable, quiet spot to read together.
Work on pronunciation by noting words that your child pronounces incorrectly.
Read slowly to help your child understand what's happening in the book.
Use reading time as a way to help soothe, comfort and calm your child when he or she is upset.
