Fun reading ideas

These tips aren't just for parents. They're for anyone who cares – grandparents, aunts, uncles, babysitters, neighbors, and friends. Print the pages out and ask other people to do the activities with your child, too. Hang the pages on your refrigerator door.

Try the activities and repeat the ones your child enjoys. Some of them – like "read with your child for 15 minutes each day" – are helpful no matter what age or stage your child is at.
