Read and re-read your child’s favorite books in any language your family speaks. If you do not have any books, you can create books together by writing down the words to stories you created together and working together to add illustrations.
Share a favorite story you already know, or create a new story with your child. The story can be about anything! For example, you might retell something that actually happened, or make up a story together. You can also share a story with your child about something from their past. Among other things, this could be a story about the first time your child did something new, a funny story about an experience or a time when your child made you proud.
