What is Early Literacy and why is it important?

 

Early Literacy is a baby who chews on a book and a toddler who wants the same story over and over. It is holding your child while you look at a book and talk to him or her about the pictures. It is singing silly songs, saying nursery rhymes, playing peek-a-boo or other games, telling stories, and letting your child “write with their crayons. Research consistently demonstrates that the more children know about language and literacy before they begin formal schooling, the better equipped they are to succeed in reading.
