Print Awareness

how to teach your child to read

Our whimsical storybooks teach children that written language holds significance. Therefore, they gradually grasp that the various squiggles and lines they see on a page symbolize complete words and sentences. In particular, this realization marks an essential step towards becoming proficient readers.

Phonological Awareness

This ability revolves around comprehending the sounds, known as phonemes, that constitute spoken words. Then, children develop the capacity to recognize and play with individual sounds, which includes identifying rhymes and alliteration. 

Letter Recognition

Children learn to identify and name the letters of the alphabet.

Letter-Sound Correspondence

Once children recognize letters, they associate each letter with its corresponding sound or phoneme. For instance, they learn that ‘A’ makes the /a/ sound.


Children learn to blend individual letter sounds together to form words. For example, they learn to blend the sounds /h/, /a/, /m/ to read the word “ham.”

Parents Can Start Fostering a Love for Books and Reading From Infancy

Parents can start fostering a love for books and reading from an early age, as early as infancy. Regular exposure to books creates a positive attitude towards reading, making children more receptive to learning to read independently later. Toddlers who are regularly exposed to new vocabulary and language patterns have enhanced language skills, listening abilities, and even improved attention spans by learning to focus on the narrative.

What You Read to Your Child Matters

Reading stories with diverse characters and emotions helps toddlers understand different feelings and fosters the development of empathy toward others. Moreover, books that expose toddlers to various new topics, cultures, and ideas broaden their knowledge and understanding of the world around them.
