My daughter was 18 months old when I took her to a reading session in Library. I never knew how she might behave or react to the session. Trust me the first session was bit noisy as she did not sit or show any interest.
Thanks to her teacher who encouraged me to come back for another session. It was a miracle by three classes she started showing interest in the session. As time went by, she was participating in the session and learning new words.
From there the journey of reading started where I use to borrow books from the library and read for her each night.
