We know from years of research that face-to-face interaction in the early years is the primary way children learn. These early interactions, like sharing books, talking, singing, or playing with children help lay the foundation for early language and literacy – essential skills for success. Professionals working in early childhood development are all too aware of how crucial the years from 0-5 are for the intellectual and emotional development of children. Not nearly enough parents seem to be aware of how crucial these years are.
