Talking Is Teaching
Share this story with your baby or toddler to encourage language skills.
Share the story with babies and toddlers! Books give grown-ups the opportunity to talk, read, and sing with little ones. Consider these tips:
- As you read the story to kids, say more about each photo.
- The book is full of rhyme and rhythm. Have fun with it! Read it soft, loud, fast, or slow.
- As you read, connect with kids. Look into their eyes and chant, “You see me, I see you! Love you, love you, yes I do!”
- If kids seem to enjoy the story, read it again! Reading the same book repeatedly builds kids’ awareness of how to read a book and also builds memory skills.
