Storytime is very important in your child's growth. Storytime can happen at home, at school,at the library, and even digitally. Here are the key components of early literacy:

1. Print motivation:
 A child's interest in and enjoyment of books.

2. Phonological awareness:
The ability to hear and play with smaller sounds in words.

3. Vocabulary:
Knowing the names of things.

4. Narrative skills:
The ability to describe things and events ad to tell stories.

5. Print awareness:
Noticing print, knowing how to handle a book, and understanding how to follow the written words on a page.

6. Letter knowledge:
Knowing that letters are different from each other, the same letter can look different, and that each letter has a name and is related to sounds.
