Chelsea Clinton, Elmo Talk About Baby Charlotte, Reading to Kids

By    |   Thursday, 22 Jan 2015 06:26 PM

Chelsea Clinton sat down with Elmo to share her love for her newborn daughter, Charlotte, and the importance of reading and talking to your children during an exclusive People interview.

Clinton, 34, recently returned to work at the Clinton Foundation after having Charlotte, but she’s active in promoting reading to help children.

"My husband Marc and I read to Charlotte every night, and when her grandparents come over, they read to her as well," she said in the video. "It's so important that little kids, kids Charlotte's age, and kids your age, Elmo, be read to and talked to and sung to. It helps their brains develop."

The video is part of a promotion with Too Small to Fail, "Sesame Street," and Text4Baby that is designed “to distribute research-based tips to new parents about the importance of talking, reading, and singing with their newborn children,” a press release said. The program was announced at the Clinton Global Initiative America, and it taps into research that found that parents who received text messages with reading tips had children who performed better on literacy tests.

Clinton told People that she focuses on reading and talking to her daughter. “I start talking to her when I'm changing her diaper in the morning and when we're picking out what clothes she's going to wear for the day," she said. "I read her the news every morning. She agrees with me on everything right now."

Although happy to talk about motherhood, People said Clinton didn’t let the conversation drift into whether Hillary Clinton might be considering a presidential run in 2016.

“No, I'm waiting too. It's really sweet how my mom is just so clearly happy being a grandma and I know she's going to be a great grandma, whatever other choices she makes in her life," Clinton told the magazine.
