Product description


"I am confident in saying that it's an excellent guide for any parent and it's an especially good idea for a shower gift for a new parent." -

"Reading stories with a young child is a universal joy. Books can open up a new world to babies and toddlers, and prepare them for life. What Straub, Dell'Antonia, and Payne have done in this new edition of Reading with Babies, Toddlers, and Twos is to create an accessible and enjoyable guide for all those interested in the early learning and development of young children. It not only includes comprehensive lists of childhood favorites, but has incorporated a new section on how electronic media (e-readers and apps) can enhance the experience of reading together. If you care about fostering early literacy in young children, this book is a "go to" resource." - Traci Lester, Executive Director, Reach Out and Read of Greater New York

"What a delightful guide! All book-loving parents of young children will find this resource to be invaluable." - Gretchen Rubin, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project

"With wit, grace and a million good ideas, this book is a gift to parents, teachers, and the little ones they take care of each day. Don't miss the smart and surprising chapter on ebooks and video.

If you've ever wondered whether it makes sense to read to children so young, wonder no more. There's much more to children's books than words and pretty pictures. This guide is a beautiful reminder that books can ignite hours of singing, playing, laughing and imagining.

It made me want to rush to my children's bookshelves and gather the kids around me. Let's read!
" - Lisa Guernsey, director of the Early Education Initiative at the New America Foundation

"Written with a light touch and a firm grasp of the parent's point of view, this information-packed book is a lively introduction to the rewards of reading to your child." - Leonard Marcus, author of Show Me a Story!: Why Picture Books Matter
