How does reading Toddlers books help development?
During the Toddler period, we are wanting and expecting a huge jump in the number of words a child understands and says. Book reading has been shown to be an extremely important way of boosting this early word explosion in toddlers. There are so many wonderful toddler’s books available with a wide range of topics and stories. One research project showed that it is this wide exposure to pictures and words that helps cognitive development.
Toddler’s books allow the toddler to identify and know about things they would not be able to be exposed to during their everyday experiences. Children rarely if at all see real cows, tigers, tractors, rockets, fireman, kites, caterpillars etc. Toddlers books are therefore essential learning aide. What about TV and iPad. Fine if you are snuggled next to them pointing to pictures, naming the words, making the animal noise with them! Books encourage close interactions with adults which contributes to the proven success of the use of toddler books in early development.
