Parents these days face many difficult decisions, no matter if their kids speak one language, two languages or three languages. One of them is whether or not teach children to read in an early childhood, before the school's formal education starts. Some parents decide to wait, thinking that kids will otherwise get bored at school, some step in and provide the reading instructions before elementary school thinking that being "prepared" will help children along the way.
I can understand both parents' positions; nevertheless, experts on this topic see a great benefit in engaging children in pre-reading activities early in life and at preschool. Doing some rhythm and phonic related activities that help children slowly establish letters-sounds connection and prepare them for more formal instructions.
