Encouraging Early Literacy 

 

Beginning at birth and during your child’s early years, crucial connections are formed and strengthened in the brain through repeated playful, loving, and stimulating experiences.
Each time you read a story, tickle a belly, sing a song, or play peek-a-boo, connections
are made between brain cells. Repetition makes the connections stronger, so sing that
song again!
