Hi ams1612

That's too early for a 1 year kid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Every mom wants his/her child develop to the utmost but do anyone knows the definition of utmost???? It differs from person to person. Just enjoy with the kid n enjoy his developments. These days will never come back. He has whole life to study.

 Its early to read but not early to develop reading habbit.

Buy short story books with big letter font and lots of pictures. Make your child sit on your lap , show words through your finger and read stories. Use lots of sounds (also u can make ur own puppets) to make story time interesting. Set a time to read everyday .(Magic pot magazine is good option)

Children can identify patterns. Use flash card method to introduce phonics. Search online to learn the method. You can make ur own cards or download and print from web.

Make games with letters. Check this for ideas

You can also use mobile apps for this purpose(but be careful. Child should not get addicted to that and ofcourse there is chance of dropping and breaking the mobile :-))

Dont force your child to read. If you make reading fun, your child will start reading as soon as possible.

When child turns 3 or 3.5 years , you can use this book (available in Flipkart)

everyone has said what i would say!

1 year is too early to start need to let the child develop first.

however, you may help the child develop some interest in reading by reading to him everyday or by showing him board books with big colorful pictures (without expecting him to identify or read back)

i can understand the anxiety of being in a small town, but this anxiety shouldnt make your child aversive to studies.
