As early as five months of age, babies can look at pictures, listen to your voice, and later, at about nine or ten months, point to objects on wooden pages -- the first steps in literacy. When you associate words with images and real-world objects, your baby learns the importance of language.
As children learn to speak, they are wired to engage with the sound of language, long before they notice printed words. Being able to point to an image, aiming to associate it with a real-world object that isn't tangible at that moment, stimulates early imagination. It expands an understanding of the world. Language is developed, listening skills are enhanced, and attention span grows.
When adults take the time to hold books and read with children on a regular basis, the subtle message is critical: reading is a valued and worthwhile activity.
