Babbling is early reading

Babble, babble, babble away early reader!

A baby or toddler who is babbling while holding or playing with a book is beginning the early stages of reading. There are many pre-literacy activities which include:

  • reaching for a page in a book
  • pointing to the pictures in a book
  • reacting to a book by babbling, laughing, or smiling

Be an engaged listener when your baby or toddler “Pretend Reads” to you. Respond with praise and make them feel that their babbling  is the best reading you have ever heard! This will encourage them to continue reaching for those books and developing their love of reading and their literacy skills. Babble away......

I have a Masters in Education and years of experience reading to children in the classroom. I have always been  a passionate reader.  I love to find great literature for the classroom. After reading many, many, books to my students, I  was inspired to write my own stories that would captivate the minds of young children and encourage early literacy. I am married with two beautiful daughters, to whom I love to read.

I have always had a love for children and a drive to see them thrive and succeed. This is what inspires me to create books that encourage early literacy and books that children love to read!  I am currently the Assistant Director of a preschool in St. Louis. I am the proud mother to four beautiful boys. My husband Jeff and I love to read together as a family.
