Whether you are raising your child bilingual or not, a great way to expose your child to the language is to read to your child, as early as in the womb!
The vocabulary contained in books can be richer and far more colourful than what we use in daily life. Many school professionals believe that it can lead to improved language fluency later on.
You can reuse your favourite books and it can turn into a nice routine, e.g. a cozy bedtime habit.
One of our favourite books is “Der Grüffelo”, as it is a rhyming story. Rhymes are not only enjoyable, they are also a memorable reading experience and teach early literacy skills - building phonetic awareness - which leads to reading and writing success later on.
