What’s Happening at this Age
- Showing you how much they love reading by carrying books around and handing books to you to read
- Answering questions by pointing with one finger, like when you ask, “Where is the squirrel?”
- Recognizing when a book is upside down
- Beginning to show empathy, like looking sad when viewing a picture of another child crying
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?
Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes is a classic toddler song and game that we have included in the collection before. This particular version, with the bears performing the game, opens the possibility of you moving with your child or your child playing the game with a stuffed animal.
Your child may not have the fine motor skills to do all of the actions in this book right away, but you can gently guide them through making the movements pictured in the book. You might try doing the actions with your child’s favorite stuffed animal. Don’t be shy about singing the words. Your child loves the sound of your voice and will enjoy the rhythm of the words even more when sung.
