Being a toddler's parent is one of the most challenging tasks in the world; besides their safety, you also have to ensure their wholesome physical and mental development. Life is fun and games for toddlers, but parents must ensure that they inculcate the habit of reading in them. Though daycares for toddlers can be truly efficient in boosting curiosity for learning, parents have to invest some time with their kids, especially in activities like reading; no easy task but crucial!

Effective ways to Engage your Toddler in Reading

At a daycare, toddlers spend just a few hours a day, and the rest of their time is spent with their parents. So, the parents need to be proficient at engaging their kids in reading. Some of these ideas can be quite helpful in imbibing a healthy reading routine and a form of intellectual-developmental bonding with your child – 

• If your toddler acts out stories, skips, romps, or tumbles while you read to them, don't worry — toddlers need to move. Even though they are moving, they are listening.

• Take a break to let your child finish a sentence or repeat a phrase. When your child has mastered a rhyme/ pattern, intentionally make mistakes and let them correct your folly.

• Choose books that have machines or animals as they encourage kids to move around and make noises. Their hands are kept busy by flappy books that have intricate materials to feel. Books with descriptive graphics or objects tucked away in the imagery make excellent exploration and discussion materials.

• Babies typically have longer attention spans than toddlers. Look for concise, straightforward writing. Read with them a little every day, numerous times.

• Encourage children to play with words, descriptions, and communication.

• Pick works that explore commonplace emotions and experiences. As the characters dress, eat, visit, sleep, and play, your youngster will be able to relate to them.

• As you question your young child, give them time to respond. Toddlers have interesting thoughts about the world and strong opinions about it. Encourage your young child to express their opinions to you.

• Look for books about subjects your child enjoys, such as trains, animals, or the moon. These books could increase toddlers' interest in reading and lengthen their attention span.
