One of the benefits of reading to your baby is the positive bonding that takes place. Choose a time to read when you are both relaxed. Your baby will enjoy hearing the rhythm of your voice, feeling your heartbeat, and smelling your familiar scent. After many experiences like these with books, your baby will come to associate books with the close, happy times with mommy and daddy.
