Your Child can now point to things in a book and have a better understanding of a story.
Knowing what’s going on in a story certainly makes reading time more fun and engaging. By the time children are 2 years old, they can point to things in a book when asked to do so For example, when asked: “Where is the cat?” They can point at the cat in the book. Some children may also be able to answer a simple question from a book — for example, ”What’s the color of the ocean?”.
How to support this development
To support this development, stay consistent with the reading schedule. Make storytime a routine that’s fun for Your Child. You may build a cozy corner where you and the little one can spend time reading together. Also, you may put on a little theatrical performance by varying the tone of your voice.
Note: All children develop differently and at their own pace. For children born preterm, the referred timeframe for achieving the various developmental milestones might be incorrect.
Source: The information and graphs about when children reach specific milestones are taken from various sources, including the United States Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Denver Developmental Screening Test, and the State Institute of Early Childhood Research, Germany (IFP).
