How text pointing benefits baby

When you are going to read to your baby, be sure to point to the words as you go.  By doing this, you will be training your baby to read from left to right.  This is important for babies to understand so they naturally develop this skill.  Your baby will also begin to recognize words.  This is especially useful and beneficial if you are reading books that are very repetitive.  Your baby will soon know what word comes next and be able to identify that word in its printed form.  Babies also learn which way to turn the pages in a book when they are read to from early on.
