Yes! I think it would be a disservice to the child who has been rarely read to before starting school. Some parents/caregivers may say the kid isnít interested in books. Sometimes, it takes time. Just start reading a book n the kid will most likely eventually come sit with you

I have a 79 IQ and yet became a pretty good reader.

If you choose the right books, then you can instill a love of reading from childhood.

Hello! As a preschool teacher of 7 years, my short answer is YES. Children need to be exposed to reading and books (read to, pretending to read you a story based on the pictures...), in order to develop emergent literacy skills. They acquire skills from these experiences that they need prior to learning to read. If anyone is interested in an amazing product that I refer many parents to, here is a link to check it out.

Welcome aboard and I hope this is the first of many posts. Even though I am almost illiterate and have an IQ of 79 I agree. You should probably remove that dead link though; its site has been disabled.

You don't have to be a genius to read at 3.

I'm not a genius.
My boy is not a genius.
My daughter might be...but she read at 4.

You just need someone there teaching you.

Never underestimate the mind of a child. Of course, reading to a child under the age of 5 is very important. Plant the seed. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I read, sang, and spoke to her while I carried in my womb.

Never stop teaching her, no matter her age. She's listening and taking in more than realize. As long as we have breath, we will never stop learning. Your daughter is no exception to the rule.

Do not deprive her of something so important. By reading to her at such a young age, exposes to another beautiful world.

I am a children's author, and it always amazes me and puts a smile on my face to see the reaction of children when they hear my stories. Checkot my book "Hey Look At Me!" by Desree Crooks at Nzuri Books. I would love to hear your feedback.
