What’s Happening at this Age
- Beginning to ‘choose’ a bedtime book by reaching for it
- Beginning to look towards items you point to
- Enjoying hiding for peekaboo
- Imitating sounds
Your baby is likely developing some favorite books. They may even present you with what they want you to read when you hold up a couple of choices of books. Their attention span is getting longer so they may be able to enjoy a book with a couple of sentences to the page. They may also start pointing to things when you ask a question such as, ”Where’s the bunny?” Peekaboo is a favorite game as your dear one is just now starting to learn about how permanent things are. Will you still be behind your hands when you say Peekaboo? Oh good! It’s you!

Why did we select this book?
This beloved toddler song is perfect for young ones to learn the parts of their body. It is also a great way for toddlers to move along with the rhythm of the book/song. The selection committee had been looking for a good version of this song and was pleased to find such a nice one from a Maine publisher.
Singing songs and rhymes is a great way to bond with your child 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, like having your child gently touch their head, shoulders, knees, and toes as you sing along with this book, also stimulates the brain and helps it grow.
