Your child can now recall part of a story. As you read aloud, ask him questions and make it interactive. When he is actively involved, he learns more from the book. You can ask him, “What is this?” He says, “Car.” You say, “That’s right! It’s a red car.'' Can you say “Red Car?” After reading the book, ask him what he remembers. It's very important he understands what is being read.
What you need to know
Read books to which your little one responds and enjoys. This way he can pick up the book again and with repetition, he can tell what is the story all about.
Invest in books like alphabet books, song books, rhyming books and picture books.
