I read to him all the time. I kept count one year. We would go to the Library everyday, and we could only take out ten books a day. I also bought him books at the store. I kept count and we read over one thousand books, between March and the end of December. We also had a blanket with the alphabet on it. We would rock, and I had that blanket over him. I would point at the alphabet and tell him the letters. By the time he could talk, my husband took him to the doctor one day, and my son, pointed to the alphabet out of order and he knew all of the alphabet. I read to him, until he wanted to read on his own. He still loves reading at twenty seven. How ofter do you read to your kids. Also show them and tell them the alphabet?
