The truth is that it’s never too early to start reading to your child. You can begin reading to your child before they are even born. If you have a baby, child or toddler and have not started reading to them or with them yet, start now. You, as a parent, are your child’s first and best teacher. Giving them a head start will make them SMARTER! I have heard the question “can I teach my baby to read?” Babies can read fluently as early as 2 years old when given the tools.
