Can someone let me know the best way to teach a 30 month old baby how to read.
I don't want to hot house him but would like to spend 10 mins with him every day just teaching him to read but I am worried I might do it incorrectly. He can say his ABCs, he can correctly point out letters on a page most of the time.
I've looked at books on phonics but most seem to advanced for him, can someone suggest one for a child that is just starting out.

I would really just concentrate on enjoying books and playing games with letters, sounds and numbers. Fun with mark making, which can be on paper, play dough, mud or anywhere.

If you want to do more, the Jolly Phonics resources are good.

Mine loved watching Alphablocks on CBeebies.

The characters are letters of the alphabet. They teach the sound of their own letter when they stand by themselves. When they hold hands with each other they show how to blend the sounds together to make words.

They used to have the videos and games on the CBeebies website but it's been a while since I've looked on there.
