If you're the proud parent of a new baby---you've discovered by now that babies are pretty spectacular.  Lots of things babies can do---like when they smile at your--that can melt the hardest heart.   But there is something a baby CAN'T DO!   Even your bundle of joy!!


I'm sure you've seen all of the DVDs, books, and other programs that claim they can teach your baby to read. You might even believe that they’ve helped your kid.  But a just released study shows that just isn't the case---they DO NOT work.   The people who did the research found that there was absolutely NO difference in the language skill of babies that were shown the DVD's, the flashcards and the flip books when they compared them to the babies that did not have exposure to the stuff.   Now you know!  Babies can't learn to read!  (ScienceCodex)
