Perhaps the most important thing they learn, though, is to associate books with fun, comfort and enjoyment. Things they can see, touch, manipulate, modify; situations that allow them to figure out what happens--in short, events and puzzles that they can investigate, which is the very stuff of science.

This helps your child to spot that words are made up of groups of letters, and that words go from left to right and from top to bottom on the page.

I certainly appreciated the amount of genuine research, and picked up some nice nuggets to use at home.
