Thirteen Powerful Parent Messages to Build the Foundation for Learning-to-Read

PARENT MESSAGE #1 in my book: “Make Time for Reading: a story guide for parents of babies and young children.”  (available for sale at http://www.readingfarm.net). 

YOUR BABY WANTS TO HEAR YOU TALK, READ AND SING IN THE LANGUAGE OF YOUR HOME AND YOUR HEART

AS SOON AS SHE IS BORN!”

I love to tell parents who attend my early literacy seminars about how many benefits there are to bringing up baby bilingual.

Babies who are fortunate enough to have a parent who is fluent in a language other than English — can acquire a certain ‘brain’ flexibility as they learn to naturally switch from one language to another.

Babies are ‘listening’ for the sounds of the language spoken by the important people in their lives. So talk, read and sing … even croon … often … in the language of your home and your heart. Your baby’s brain will love it.
