“It takes 1000 hours of ‘lap-time’ for young children to have the readiness skills in place to learn to read.” –National Institute for Children’s Health and Development
“Lap-time” means one-on-one interaction between a parent or caregiver and a child where meaningful language interactions take place. Types of lap-time activities include: talking, singing, rhyming, chanting, and, of course, reading.
