As a first time mommy, I wanted to teach my growing toddler how to read as early as possible. I wanted her to learn the phonics and be able to blend the sounds of the letters in a word. And so, I began teaching her the alphabets when she was one year old, along with numbers, different shapes, colors, fruits and vegetables. By the time she began to speak at about 2 years old, she easily learned to pronounce all of it and she developed skills on identifying each of them as well.
Start with Phonics
We know that building phonemic awareness is very essential in the process of learning to read as it helps the child blend the sounds of each letter to read a certain word. Phonics also teach kids about syllables.
My three year old toddler is a little bookworm, she enjoys opening her books whenever Mommy is busy with work. At times, I could hear her reading aloud some words through phonics. At this very young age, my daughter is starting to read 3 to 5 letter words through phonics and also beginning to learn about sight words as well.
It’s imperative that parents give their full support to their kids at this stage of their development. Young readers need books with fun stories and easy to read texts to develop their skills and see progress everyday.

Today on the blog, I’m excited to share these wonderful personalized book series from “MyLiBook“, text by Estelle Bardon and illustrated by Aya Suarjaya.

The stories of MyLiBook series are simple and straight-forward, it is easier for little kids to explore the book by themselves and enjoy reading on their own. But as a mommy like me, I love reading with my baby. I enjoy listening to her while she reads the story but when she has difficulty with a certain word, I was there to guide her.
I also make sure to ask her after each book if she understood what the story is about and have a conversation about it. This is essential for early readers, for them to nurture the joy of reading while developing their literacy skills.
We have the responsibility as parents to help our child succeed as readers. Through reading, we are helping them boost their imaginations and understand more about the world. More importantly, this helps them develop their literacy skills, language and even their listening skills too.
Let’s help our kids enrich their minds at an early age through books. As a tool for them to get knowledge while they explore more about the bigger world ahead of them. With knowledge they will have power to face the world!
