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.

Singing songs and rhymes is a great way to bond with your baby and share quality time together. Each time you read, talk, and sing to your Dear One, you are helping their language development by introducing them to the natural sounds and patterns of speech. Combining these with actions also stimulates the brain and helps it grow.
