Literacy info to adults:

aside #1: We talked about the early literacy skill print awareness, which is an awareness of how books work. I explained that print awareness is how we know that we read the words on the page, not the pictures, and we read from front and back, top and bottom, left to right

aside #2: Choosing books that have interesting or larger type helps develop your child’s print awareness.

aside #3:  I explained that I pointed to some of the words in the book, the ones with larger type, as I read them. This helps children understand that it is the words we are reading, which develops print awareness.
