Demonstrate higher comprehension and storytelling skills
Children can understand more complex sentences by the age of 2 to 3 as they have much better comprehension and cognitive skills, so they will enjoy longer and more elaborate stories. While they can count accurately and compare the sizes, lengths and weights of differnt things, they can describe something in a more detailed way and start creating simple stories of their own. Some children can even distinguish obvious consonants or vowels if they have received sufficient listening input.
Reading stories about daily life topics with children will facilitate children to learn new routines and build self-discipline, such as going potty or sleeping alone. Extended games based on the reading materials, like role-playing and story retelling, also help deepen their memory and stimulate higher order thinking. Proper phonics teaching materials also help enhance their phonological awareness.
