- Pick the best time – when both of you are in the mood.
- Bonding is most important – you don’t have to read every word – point to pictures and talk in an excited voice.
- Watch baby – let baby play with the book and take a break if baby’s not having fun.
- Cuddle – touch and love baby while sharing books.
- Share books every day – it’s important, even if only for a few minutes.
Why Board Books?
- They fit in little hands.
- They have short, fun stories and activities.
- They stand up to wear and tear.
