Babies learn to become good communicators when their caregivers respond to their sounds and actions. They learn to love books and reading when their caregivers read to them often. By the time they are three, they understand stories with plots, and they can tell you stories with a beginning, middle, and end. Learn how you can help your infant and toddler develop all of the skills necessary to become confident readers and writers.
