One of the most powerful ways to develop your child's literacy skills is also the simplest: talk with your kids! Regular, meaningful conversations help kids learn new words and understand how to listen, and provide opportunities to share their own stories and ideas. When caring adults talk to kids about the world — explaining how a recipe works or the rules of baseball — they are planting seeds of knowledge that will grow as kids become independent thinkers, readers and writers.
