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?
Like other books in this collection, this text gives you a chance to build important rhyming skills as well as giving you the opportunity to let your little one know you love him. The playful approach to giving hugs can allow you to read and get silly with the text.
When you connect an activity in your child’s day with an activity depicted in a book you have read aloud, you are making an important connection that helps your child learn and grow. When you cook in the kitchen, remember how the rabbits made a pie. When you are outside, stop to look for bugs or smell a flower like the little rabbit. “Ambush” hugs can be great fun where you just sneak up on each other and declare it time for a hug, just like the rabbit family.
