What’s Happening at this Age
- Recognizing familiar voices
- Gazing at high contrast pictures
- Looking at faces
Your little one is just getting used to the world around them. That includes getting to know YOU in a new way! Up until now, your baby has only heard your voice. Your voice is the most important thing in their world right now. Singing and talking to them as you soothe them reinforces that connection. Reading simple books, even though they don’t understand them, gives you another way of sharing your connection. As their vision develops, they will be increasingly drawn to faces. When you talk with them, putting your face within 12 inches of theirs will help them connect your face to the sound that they already love!
Why did we select this book?
There are so many ways that poetry is good for us and for our child's developing language skills. Not always, though, are poetry collections so filled with sunshine, laughter, ice cream and bright faces as this book. We chose this book because of the family-friendly poems and their glowing illustrations by Polly Dunbar. We hope you read aloud from this collection for years to come.
