How to Read a Child’s First Word

A new survey conducted by The National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES) found that more than 70 percent of American children have read at least one article on child-care, from books about how to pick up toys to tips for finding the perfect babysitter.

The NCES survey found that children ages 3 to 11 are the least likely to have read any article on childcare.

Nearly half of children (47 percent) said they had read a book about child care, and only 6 percent said they read an article about childcare.
