One week ago, we got the Your Baby Can Read set in the mail. It’s supposed to be a really innovative (and fun) way to teach young children to read. Malaki will be two in less than two weeks, and they say he is at the optimal age to learn. They also say to start your baby at 3 months…
It claims to take about 6-8 months to teach your child to read. I’m going to (if I remember) post updates regularly and let you know how it goes.
Malaki loves watching the DVD and is recognizing some of the words (a little bit). Cora will only watch for about ten minutes, and I’m not going to push it. We’ll see. Wouldn’t it be great if it worked?
It comes with:
- Parent guide and DVD
- 5 DVDs. (starter, 1, 2, 3, & review)
- 50 word game cards
- 5 lift-a-flap books
- 1 window book
- 82 double-sided word cards
- Music CD
This is how it works:
Your child watches one of the DVDs two times a day. They are about 20 minutes long. You play with the flashcards and the books as much as you want to. Boom-Bang: your baby can read.
Ok, so it’s not quite that simple, but I’m new at this and can’t explain it better.
