Your baby cannot read. No one's baby can read.

Developmental psychology tells us that babies simply cannot read. They can memorize things, they can learn that certain combinations of shapes (letters are shapes at this age) mean certain things, but they can't read.

Reading includes learning to sound out letters and letter combinations, beginning to understand root words, prefixes and endings, word meanings, as well as sight reading. Sight reading is as close to Your Baby Can Read as real reading gets, and even then it's not really even sight reading yet. Sight reading is also not actually functional reading and is only used for really simple words. You can't take a child who can only sight read, plop them in front of a book, and expect progress without additional instruction.
