Tips & Activities for Developing Infant Print Motivation

  • Give books to your baby and let him play with the books like they are toys. This will help your baby understand how books work and that they are fun!

  • Bond with your baby through books. While reading, change the tone of your voice to make reading interesting and fun.

  • Allow your baby to interact with the book while you are reading. If she wants to hold the book and chew on it while you read, that's fine. Strive to make book reading a positive experience and not a negative one.

  • Show your enthusiasm and love for books.
