Parents are advised to read to their children often and early. At about three to four months, it's a great time to start reading to your baby.
Babies don't understand what they are hearing when they are just three months old, but they are learning patterns of speech and intonation. They can also recognize pictures they see again and again.
Books for babies and toddlers are created with this in mind to create the best and most beneficial experience for your baby.
Don't be too worried that your baby would rather eat the book than look at the pictures and listen to the story. In fact, it's encouraged. Buy books your baby can see, touch, and feel, or try pop-up baby and toddler books and play peek-a-boo.
