Interact with him
If you read to a toddler and he doesn’t seem focused, don’t assume he’s not interested. Children need to be engaged, so you need to help him concentrate on the story. It’s all about interaction. So, if you’re reading a book and his attention is drifting, get him to focus by asking questions about the story: ‘Hey, where’s the bunny gone?’ Grab his attention, so he takes a look at the book and spots the bunny. Don’t worry if you can’t get him to focus straightaway. If you’re interested in the book, he will eventually focus on the story, too.
