I don't know if it works but do not think it is necessary. Just reading to your baby gets them interested in learning.

Even if it did it's not a good idea. It's best if kids are left to learn to read on their own. If you don't put your child in school and don't do anything to teach reading almost all children will learn to read on their own by age 12 (John Holt). At age 12 then you can help the few that haven't learned how to read. The problem is when we teach children to read we often do more harm than good. We create reading disorders by trying to teach them before they are developmentally ready. We create psychological disorders by labeling them as having reading problems. My youngest was a premie and has an IQ of 80. He has been evaluated many times and it's always 80. He has been treated by developmental doctors at a major children's hospital and I was told he would never read. He learned to read on his own when he was 12. He is now in college. You don't have to "teach" children to read.
