A custom made book is the best way to help a toddler learn to read. If you have a printer you can make a simple “book” using words that you know that they can easily read. You can include lots of photos to keep it interesting. And you can write about things that you know your toddler likes. For example, if your toddler is a fan of cars, you can make a book which includes photos of cars. If your toddler likes animals, you can make a book which includes photos of animals. The most important things to remember are:

  • make the print big, font 30-40 or bigger
  • use lots of photos,
  • use just a few simple words,
  • keep it short, no more than a page or two
  • make it as funny as possible
