Young Reader Good Idea

 It is a good idea to have a good variety of books that have an interesting varied vocabulary that suite your child's development, and then take some time, each day to read to your child.

When you read, pause and ask questions or make comments about the pictures and the things that happen in the book, and just as importantly, listen to your child's answers.

When you ask a question, make it open-ended not a question that only requires a yes or no answer, this will help your child express their thoughts and feeling.

If the book has illustrations, talk to your preschooler about the pictures. Ask them to point out color, shapes and sizes, or possibly numbers of things and the characters in the story.

Music is another great tool for developing preschool language, as it uses repetition, which as we all know, is the mother of all skill.

When it comes to music, make sure that the songs your preschooler is listening to uses clear, well pronounced language that avoids shortened or slang words and phrases.
