What’s Happening at this Age

Your toddler is able to communicate a great deal with a small but growing vocabulary! Their ability to point at objects to gain your attention is a huge milestone that tells you they’re aware that you have a perspective that’s different from their own. This is called “shared attention” and it’s an important part of communicating and caring for others. Books about friends and family are very interesting to your toddler and talking together about what you’re reading will increase your child’s learning.

Why did we select this book?
Having a 15-month-old means having many routines! Getting dressed, having a meal, playing together, reading together, taking a bath, and going to bed. This paired set of board books offers all of these routines in one. There is lots of room for conversation and laughter when you see the animals' children appear on the pages, doing the same things you do each day.
When you are taking a bath or preparing for bed, remind your child about the animals in the book. For example, say “I am running the water like the mama elephant” or “I am putting water on your head just like the mama elephant did with her baby. This is how elephants and little children get clean.” When you connect your child’s life with things that happen in books, books become more important to them. The more important books are to children, the stronger their reading will be when they go to school.
