    Read on about parents' questions on their kid's reading delay problems.


    4.  My 4-yearold enjoys going to school, but I worry every time that she may not be at the same reading level as her classmates. What can I do to help her out?

    To get her interested in reading, choose books with lots of colorful pictures and big print. Read to her as often as you can, and make sure that the story you select is easy to follow. At this age, children like hearing about characters who go through scary situations but end up succeeding, or animals with traits similar to humans. Fairy tales are other favorites of children age 4 to 6. You may introduce your child to such material, but don’t be alarmed if she hasn’t caught the reading bug just yet. Reading is taught to a child, but the development of this skill is not the same in all kids. Just keep on encouraging your little one and allow her to discover the exciting worlds that reading has to offer.
