This little boy in the video is around 15-18 months. Just wanted to share the reality of such a young child who already knows what books are about, has already learnt about the name of a new book (3 days only) in the house, can choose that particular one from many, knows the front page, back page and where one starts and where it finishes. He understands that there is text on each page and 'Mum' reads it (quickly) because his anticipation and enjoyment is obvious, which is all part of the process. Although his language is not yet perfect, his beginning sounds can be expressed along with other intonations. This opportunity is priceless for all children - share stories and spend time reading.
