Book Introduction: Start with book upside down. Children will say to "turn it the right way". If not, look at the upside-down book and say, "Oh I can't read it like this, I have to turn it right side up. Read title and point out author/illustrator, running finger under the words. Early Literacy Aside--Example: Some of the words in this book are written in large type. I'll be pointing to these words as I read the book. This helps your child notice the print and develop print awareness.
