By March 6, 2012

cover art of Diddle, Diddle, DumplingYou're expecting a baby or you have a new baby. You're anxious to raise a child who loves to read, but you have a lot of questions. Hopefully, you will find a lot of the answers in my article 10 Tips for New Parents: Babies, Books and Reading Aloud. I have included an About.com video for you to watch: Making Reading to Young Children Fun, book reviews of three books for parents, tips on reading aloud, recommended Mother Goose board books and general information that should prove helpful from now until your baby becomes a child who is an enthusiastic reader. I have also included some parents' own stories about introducing books to their babies and toddlers. If you have a story to share, tell about your experiences at Reader Stories.

I am really tickled to hear how children as young as two years old are not just listening to but also trying to read my DANCING DINOS series books. The three R’s for toddlers are definitely RHYME, RHYTHM, and REPETITION!
