Reading to your child

From birth to the first year:

In the first months, embrace your child, read to him, speak to him and sing to him.

Between 3-6 months of age, your child will begin to enjoy the view of the mirrors and facial pictures, shapes and colors. And he will begin the issuance of voices, and extending his hand to touch the images. So choose books with interesting pictures and texture. 

Between 6-12 months of age, your child sitting on your lap, looks at the pictures, touches the book, and perhaps puts the book in his mouth. Use the books made of plastic and cardboard, point to and call the pictures for your child.

From one to two years:

From 12-18 months of age, your child may enjoy the selection of books from the shelf, will sit and hold the book, and turn the pages. Follow your child's interest in reading to be losing interest in the book. Ask your child questions and wait his answers, like "Where's the dog?"  And "What does the dog say?".

From 18-24 months of age, your child may start naming familiar objects and says a few words in familiar stories. He even claims to have read to the dolls and games and recalls parts of the stories. When you read, stop to ask your child "What is this?", and give him time to answer. 

From two to three years:

At this age, your child will be able to deal with paper books. And he will begin to understand the relationship between the pictures and the story, and he may make opinion and looking for his favorite books and of his favorite images. Be prepared to read the same book over and over again. Ask questions about what is happening in the book, relate the story by familiar things to the child and experiences that he had passed, Try dropping some of the words from the end of rhyme sentences And give your child the opportunity to fill in the missing word.

More than three years:

At this age, your child will be able to turn pages one after the other. He will be able to listen to longer stories and telling the familiar stories using his simple vocabulary. Also he begins to differentiate the letters and numbers and identify them. Ask him questions such as: "How many balls? Let’s count them together! What is happening now? What will happen? Look for books that help the child to learn the practical lessons as making friends, and going to school....

Encourage him to say, paints and read stories written by him.
