Talk about writing, too.
Mention to your child how we read from left to right and how words are separated by spaces.
Read it again and again.
Go ahead and read your child’s favorite book for the 100th time. Children love the repetition.
Discuss what’s happening in the book, point out things on the page, and ask questions.

Put the book away for awhile if your child loses interest or is having trouble paying attention.
Read with fun in your voice.
Read to your child with humor and expression. Use different voices. Ham it up!
Say how much you enjoy reading.
Tell your child how much you enjoy reading with him or her. Talk about “story time” as the favorite part of your day.
