Teleclass: Loving Reading – How Parents Can Shape Reading Attitudes From Birth

12-08-14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This free teleclass is reserved for Mommybites Facebook fans only. Not a fan? No problem, just LIKE us on Facebook

All of us want our children to be avid readers, as we know that life success is connected to our ability to digest and process information, to deepen our understanding of the way the world works, and to become productive, thinking, members of society. But what does reading really offer our children, especially our infants and toddlers, and how can we motivate them from birth to set out on the reading quest over a lifetime?

In this class we will explore questions such as:

  • Why should we read to a child from birth?
  • How can we think about reading developmentally? How is it different at birth, at two, at four?
  • How does reading teach empathy?
  • How do our routines impact children’s reading?
  • How does play impact reading and reading impact play?
  • And more!
