How Do I Turn This On?

Print awareness, or the ability to handle a book and recognize print in the environment, is a necessary skill for children to have before they begin to read.

This includes knowing:

  • How to hold a book
  • When the book is right side up
  • How to turn pages in a book
  • In what direction text is read in the child's language(s)
  • That text has meaning
