Your child has been hearing and studying the sounds of words for quite a while now. One of the tasks of emergent literacy is to be able to hear individual sounds, to make sounds, and to put sounds together to make words. When we start to play with the letters of our language, we can help our children learn that each letter represents a unique sound or sounds and when we put letters together, they can make different sounds. This is necessary for learning to read. Playing with the sounds of words by singing, reading rhyming books and playing word games can help your child master these letter-sound connections and put them on a path to reading success!

Why did we select this book?
In this gentle book, Baby Bear not only sees the colors of the woods, but he experiences those colors with all of his senses. He touches, smells, tastes, and hears the colors. This is a great book for three year olds who are equally curious about the world around them. Like Baby Bear, your little one is learning so much about his world using all of his senses. This book can be an excellent starting point for helping your child become aware of each sense.
Can you be like the Mama Bear and help your child see, smell, taste, hear, and touch colors in and around your home? Can he taste a red strawberry? Touch an orange ball? Smell brown cinnamon? Hear gray thunder? When your child learns from you to use all of their senses, they will be a fast and curious learner.
