What’s Happening at this Age

  • Looking at pictures and begin to name familiar items like dog, cup, and baby
  • Answering questions about what they see in books
  • Recognizing the covers of favorite books
  • Beginning to recognize when a book is upside down

All of a sudden, your baby doesn’t seem like a baby anymore! This is an amazing time for your little one as they’re very aware of the world around them. Even though they’re not saying them yet, your baby is already learning words. A wonderful way to learn new words is by pointing out pictures in favorite books and talking about each thing on the page. They’re also learning about how books work so having them hand you a book can give you a chance to talk about how you hold it. Letting your baby turn the pages gives you an opportunity to praise their own efforts at handling a book.

Why did we select this book?

The more words your child hears now, the more successful they will be in school later. This book gives you the opportunity to talk about different words over many, many lap times with your child. Think about the words and images in this book as an opportunity to share a story or to remind your child about something that relates to her. For example, you could say, "This is a yellow raincoat. Grandpa has a yellow raincoat. It keeps him from getting wet when rain falls from the sky." You get wet in the rain and in the bathtub. Tonight we will pretend it is raining in the bathtub.
