IMPORTANCE OF EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT FROM BIRTH TO AGE FIVE
This manual is designed to strengthen the bond between you and your young child by helping you make the most of reading these books to children from birth through age 5.
Reading to young children is one of the most magical and important activities we can do as parents and caregivers. The benefits are far- reaching. When done regularly and well, reading to your child promotes a stronger parent-child relationship. It is also related to enhanced emotional wellness, better brain development and cognitive functioning, and increased speech, language, and communication skills.
This booklet will guide you in understanding how these benefits are possible and offer concrete strategies for using the Serenade for My Baby books so that your child, and you, can reap these benefits.
We will briefly share the research-basis of the connection between brain development and emotional development, and how positive stimulation makes for the best outcomes for young children. Then we share best practices when reading the books to young children, followed by easy-to- do activities for each book to further enhance the brain-emotion- bonding connection.
