You Can Teach Your Baby to Read Even Before They Can Speak in Just Minutes a Day!
How on earth can a baby, that is incapable of speaking, possibly learn to read? And secondly, how can we tell they know how to read?
I know what you might be thinking. Teaching a baby to read sounds like an oxymoron, but I have to tell you that it is absolutely possible for babies to learn to read. This is not just a rare exception. If you follow the advice I am about to give you, your baby will be able to read plenty of words by their 1st birthday, sentences by their 2nd birthday and books by their 3rd birthday.
This is just an average time frame. Your baby could very well be reading you books before their second birthday. But, the most amazing part about all this is that learning to read is a cinch for babies.
When babies are born, rapid brain development begins to take place. Research has proven that a baby’s brain is wired to learn language. This includes any language, whether spoken, written or sign.
This is so exciting! Many of us don’t speak a foreign language, so teaching our baby to speak one is pretty much out of the question. But, we do know how to read and we can share this gift with our babies at a time when it is easiest for them to learn. The funny thing is that it takes hardly any time at all and your baby will think it is all just a game.
It requires no effort for your baby to learn to read. Babies are just absorbing information at an incredible rate the first five years of life. By playing the reading game with babies as young as 3 months old, you can give your baby a strong start in life.
This is too exciting not to share. I began teaching my son as an infant and at 12 months old he could read words. At 18 months old, he was reading sentences. At 2 years old he was reading books. Today, at 4 years old, he can read from the Bible, the newspaper, magazines, or anywhere. And he is not alone, there are thousands upon thousands of babies worldwide that can read.
