Early Literacy Tip:

Your child will have a much easier time reading if he/she knows a lot of words, so talk, talk, talk! An easy way parents can help their child learn words is by naming things you see together, whether it is something out the window or food at a grocery store. Naming objects as you drive is a great game and learning experience for your child.
