Read Together Every Day
Reading together helps your child’s brain grow and develop. Talk about the colors and pictures you see in the book. Make it a game to have your child find things on the page, count “how many,” or guess what happens next. Talk, read and sing to your child every day — just twenty minutes makes a big difference. WIC’s books are a great place to start!
