If you purchase a video series to teach your baby to read, your baby can learn to read just by watching the videos. By having your child faithfully watch the videos, your child can and will learn to read. However, if you decide to get involved and interact with your baby, your baby will learn much faster. Videos that teach babies to read are not meant to be a substitute for parents interacting with their babies. You can interact with your baby by viewing the slide show together with your baby. You can review the words your baby is learning by implementing flash cards or books into your routine. If your baby senses that reading is something that is important to you, it will be important to your baby. Spend some time on occasion watching the videos with your baby and discussing what is happening. Television can never replace interaction with people face-to-face.
