How long should I aim to read to her each day?

Hi Brett,
My baby, Chiara is 5 months old. How long should I aim to read to her each day?
Thanks Karen

Answer: Hi Karen, There`s no hard and fast rules here. It`s really up to you and Chiara! You may find she`s really responsive to books and want to read ALL the time! Or, perhaps if she`s not so interested yet, you might just want to read a little to help her get a basic understanding "books" and "stories". As a very, very rough rule of thumb, try to read at least one book a day. It doesn`t have to be a long book! All the best, Brett
