If you’ve ever felt its time to graduate to some more grown-up books but been overwhelmed by the choices or you just can’t fathom reading the ‘old favourites’ one more time (I mean blooming heck the green sheep is behind the bush asleep!!) you need some new books on the shelves! Here’s a fabulous round-up of the best titles for kids three to five years from The Realistic Mum.
You may wonder about the benefits of reading to your baby. An infant won't understand everything you're doing or why. But you wouldn't wait until your child could understand what you were saying before you started speaking to him or her, right? Nor would you bypass lullabies until your baby could carry a tune or wait until he or she could shake a rattle before you offered any toys.
Your child can start developing good reading habits at home before he even learns to read.
It's never too early to read to your baby. As soon as your baby is born, he or she starts learning.
