Talk about what you are doing when your baby is there. When you change a diaper, when you wash the dishes, when you do anything, talk about it to your child.

Read early and often with your child, and remember: Repetition is key. You will get tired of reading the same story long before your child will get tired of hearing it. Keep reading it anyway.
