The article presents answer to the question on how phonological awareness fits into child's reading development. Phonological awareness is the ability to be sensitive to the sounds in spoken words and to manipulate them in playful ways. Phonological awareness begins between 3 and 4 years of age and children demonstrate it in many ways: by experimenting with rhymes; by making up silly names for things and by breaking up long words into syllables. Clapping to music, singing songs and reading books all help a child to build both phonological and phonemic awareness.
