Your child’s memory is expanding and they may surprise you with knowing the words of some of your favorite books and songs. Finger plays can help them to remember the songs, too. This is a busy time of brain building for your little one and you may find that they want a lot of repetition with favorite songs, stories, and activities. They’re building their own ability to engage in these things independently, so when you’re exhausted and your toddler is saying “Again! Again!” know that you’re investing in their ability to enjoy learning on their own.

Why did we select this book?
With its bright primary colors and simple premise, this is a perfect story to start children on picture books. We especially liked the imagination and cooperation that led the friends to turn their chairs into a train.
A wonderful way to enhance this book for your child is to make a train with them. Line up your kitchen chairs and climb aboard. You could even make a flag like Moo has by cutting a triangle out of a piece of paper or an old shirt and taping it to a pen or pencil. Don’t forget to make your train noises!
