On March 10th Today show host Ann Curry interviewed a family with a 17 month old who can read. She identifies complicated words and even cursive.

“We tried to do everything we could to try to stimulate her language growth,” Michael Barrett told Curry. “From day one Katy has been using sign language with her. We think anything relating to language is a good thing to nurture.”

She is amazing! See the video here…

Kindermusik is one such activity that helps your child’s interest in reading. Language skills are fostered with singing, sound imitation, and vocal play and Music & Movement Story Time encourages emergent literacy skills within the structure of the classroom experience. Our home materials, if used on a regular basis, give parents the tools to continue this learning at home. Kindermusik also offers Sign & Sing to families with children 6 months through 3 years.

 Check out Kindermusik classes for your child. You may be surprised at what they will learn in addition to music! Remember Kindermusik is a whole brain, whole child, whole body experience!

  1. This video is absolutely incredible! I teach an early childhood literature/materials course and these parents clearly have a book and media rich home. That is where it all starts – a home where a child has hands on access to books, magazines, newspapers – language in all formats – written and oral. I noted the repetitive book Elizabeth was holding – Give a Mouse a Cookie – the best type of books to encourage a child’s interaction and beginning reading.
