I’ve got babies on my mind…I’m spending my last day in Chicago, helping to take care of my beautiful (of course) new grand-daughter. I go home tomorrow…it will be hard to leave.
My picture book choice is a no-brainer…one of my favorite baby board books.
- The sturdy board book will withstand lots of handling.
- Infants, toddlers and preschoolers will LOVE lifting the flaps to find the answers.
- The simple wide-eyed babies depicted will appeal to every young child.
How parents can use this book:
- Super read aloud and interactive time for parent and child
- Helps build vocabulary and hand-eye coordination
- Encourages cause and effect thinking
- For your infant: Play peek-a-boo with your infant
- For your toddler: Hide objects under a towel and let your toddler guess what is there by feeling but not looking
- For your preschooler: Show your child several items (keys, small ball, glove, etc) and place them in a paper bag. Let your child name the items…then take out one and ask which are left in the bag.
