Early Literacy Tip: Best Books for Vocabulary

A few weeks ago, we introduced you to the six early literacy skills: print motivation, vocabulary, print awareness, letter knowledge, phonological awareness, and narrative skills.

Vocabulary is simply knowing the names of things.  The larger your child’s vocabulary the better they’ll be able to express themselves, avoiding unnecessary frustration.  When your child has the words to explain what they’re feeling, it’s easier on both of you.  Furthermore, children with larger vocabularies have a head start when they learn to read because it’s much easier to sound out words that are familiar to them.
