Tip of the Week

Toddlers are some of the busiest people on the planet. So, it is always a treasure when they slow down for a book cuddled on your lap. When read to regularly, children rapidly develop stronger language and speech pattern skills. To encourage consistent reading, here are some tips for more pleasure while reading with your baby: At 12 to 18 months, toddlers are ready for baby books with labeled objects as they enjoy pointing at and announcing names of common items. Action books that engage your baby in activities such as flaps to open or hidden pictures stimulate additional interest.Locate sturdy board books in several locations throughout the house, easily accessible for your baby or toddler to grab and preview. Set aside a special time for you and your baby to read together every day; whether at daytime or bedtime, this promotes the security of routine and boundaries for your toddler. Books about animals present the opportunity for an older baby to imitate sounds and learn even more about the world around her.
