Ask BabybugReading with Toddlers
My 15-month-old loves books. She brings me books and crawls up on my lap and it's absolutely lovely. How much should I be trying to control the whole reading experience? Is it fine to let her flip through the book as quickly as she likes? And to go backwards and forwards through the book? We can read some books in a very standard manner, front to back, page by page, with a chance for me to say each word. But others are quite the random experience. Does this matter yet?
