Early Literacy

by smartstart

Early literacy skills, which are the foundation for reading ability and school readiness, are the product of language exposure from parents and other adults who talk to young children. Reading aloud to young children is not only important for stimulating their language and cognitive skills; it also builds motivation, curiosity, and memory.
