Its important to start with a good foundation:

Infancy (Up to Age 1)
Kids usually begin to:

• imitate sounds they hear in language
• respond when spoken to
• look at pictures
• reach for books and turn the pages with help
• respond to stories and pictures by vocalizing and patting the pictures

Babies/Toddlers (Ages 1-3)
Kids usually begin to:

• answer questions about and identify objects in books — such as "Where's the cow?" or "What does the cow say?"
• name familiar pictures
• use pointing to identify named objects
• pretend to read books
• finish sentences in books they know well
• scribble on paper
• know names of books and identify them by the picture on the cover
• turn pages of board books
• have a favourite book and request it to be read often
• respond to stories and pictures by vocalizing and patting the pictures

Baby Reading Milestones

6 to 12 Months
During this period, babies become less interested in mouthing books and more interested in the story. You can promote your baby’s interest in books by looking at books with him and talking about the pictures, especially those that interest your baby. Invite your 8- or 9-month-old baby to turn the pages. If you are raising your baby to become bilingual, this is a good time to introduce objects to your baby and tell her the words for them in both languages.

12 to 18 Months
Babies delight in reading together with adults. Your baby will turn pages and name pictures of fams of familiar objects. She may begin to enjoy books that tell simple stories. Because babies are natural explorers, they love books like Pat the Bunny, which they can touch and sniff while listening to the story.

Baby Writing Milestones
Babies are just learning to use their hands. At first, your baby will not be able to grasp objects by himself, but he will awkwardly grasp a toy placed in his palm. Your 4-to 6-month-old baby can reach for and grasp things he wants. Babies will explore objects by putting them in their mouths.

6 to 12 Months
Babies gain more control over their hands. At this age, your baby is able to pass objects from hand to hand and may enjoy ripping and pulling materials. She is able to pick up very small objects using her thumb and forefinger. Babies’ hand movements become more precise, allowing them to feed themselves finger food and place rings on a post.

12 to 18 Months
Babies have developed the hand skills necessary for grasping writing tools and making marks on paper. Only at the very end of infancy, at 17 or 18 months, will your baby begin to become interested in writing. You should not expect pictures or even “colouring,” let alone letters, from your baby. By scribbling, your baby explores what he can do with crayons and paper and tries to imitate what he sees older children and parents do.
