How early can I start reading books to my 5 month old baby? Will he really understand if I read out to him?
That's a great question! While your baby will not be able to follow along with the storyline just yet, anytime you talk to your baby it is a learning experience for your child so it's never too early to starting reading to your baby! Talking, reading and singing to your baby are all great ways to support language development. Books that incorporate texture into the pages are especially great for young babies because they offer a multi-sensory experience and will not only keep your child's attention longer but will also get them more engage with and excited about books! The Usborne Touchy-Feely Books are a great series to start with: https://www.amazon.com/Thats-Panda-Written-Usborne-Touchy-Feely/dp/1409549836/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1526862401&sr=8-1&keywords=usborne+touchy+feely&dpID=51gYtnh674L&preST=_SX218_BO1,204,203,200_QL40_&dpSrc=srch
