This is a contemporary reference guide for parents and caregivers of babies, toddlers and preschoolers. Jason Boog has many practical suggestions for introducing written language, in different formats, to young children. The book is well organized and written in a conversational style. Boog cites many examples from his experiences with his daughter, Olive. The chapter "Kindergarten and Beyond" contains references to the American education system. Chapters "Before Your Baby Is Born" to "Learning With Four Year Olds" contain information universal to English speaking families.

Great tips for parents on interactive reading techniques from birth to age 5. Helpful suggestions on when it's okay to introduce tablets, apps, ebooks and other fancy technology to your kid. Not a lot of research has been done yet, but the general rule seems to be don't let them stare at shiny little boxes before they turn 2. But the author isn't anti-tablet either. Not preachy. Terrific reading lists and suggestions for educational apps when they're old enough to use them. The last chapter discusses new Common Core standards and how these interactive reading techniques can help kids once they start school.
