READING WITH CHILDREN
Children can use help from adults with their reading at all stages of their childhoods.
For babies and young children, adults can read to them and let them explore books by playing with them. As children grow, they need support to start recognizing letters, sounding out words, becoming accurate/fluent readers, and understanding what they read. Set aside time to listen to your child read, ask them questions, and talk about the story with them.
Adults can also support childrens' reading development by reading to them or letting them listen to audiobooks or videos of read alouds.
