Activity #99: Read out loud

Your baby might not understand the plot, but it’s a good time to start reading magazines, books, or labels to your little one.

This can also be considered an outing: Head for a bookstore. Sit next to a pile of board books and read through them with your baby. Make sure to read loudly so that everyone knows that you’re a good mother who cares about instilling a lifelong love of reading in your child.
