In brief: Absolutely

Follow dr. Beymer's sage advice.
This is a golden opportunity to bond with your child and teach your child to love books and reading. The sooner and better your child reads, the better your child will do in school. And what a special time this can be, reading together every day. Go for it, the rewards are phenomenal.

In brief: Yes.

As your baby gets older, read to her every day.
Choose books that are durable (cloth or board books). Pick books with bright colors and large simple pictures.
