How do kids really learn to read? And how can you encourage reading and writing from the start? Our guest today is literacy expert Dr. J. Richard Gentry, author of Raising Confident Readers: How To Teach Your Child to Read and Write – from Baby to Age 7. Dr. Gentry talks about ways that parents can encourage and play with their children in the earliest years of life, providing loving literacy interactions with their babies, toddlers, and young children.
