Don't put that book away!
By displaying books in your home, you signal that books are a valuable part of your home and life. Researchers have found a link between early reading ability and the number of books found in the child's home. A toddler who has chosen one or more favorite books is also more likely to be a successful reader in school. Designate a corner, low shelf or box where your toddler can explore a few sturdy books by himself.
