How to Use the Book
This story book can be read by an adult to a baby or a young child.
It is also highly effective when read aloud in groups of people who live and work with babies and young children. It takes only minutes to read, yet it is packed with useful information and illustrations that make it easy to understand. The 13 “Did You Know” parent messages give readers a deeper appreciation for the profound impact parents have on their children’s learning and development.
For one example of a word-game that trains children to 'get ready to read' by distinguishing sounds in words, watch this film I produced many years ago- still available on www.getreadytoread.org.
