What’s Happening at this Age
- Showing you how much they love reading by carrying books around and handing books to you to read

- 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?
Learning to talk is a challenge for all children (as it once was for adults), but a book like this one can introduce your child to how playful language can be. From words that share the same sound (alliteration) to words that have the same endings (rhymes), the language of this book and its bold animal collages are a delight.
When you read this book aloud, have fun emphasizing or exaggerating how the words are similar. For example, exaggerate the “L” in “lazy” and “lion” so that your child can start to hear the connections in the words. Books become more meaningful to your child when they are shown ways they relate to their life. For example, when your child is talking, can you call them a “chirpy birdy,” or when they are excited, can you call them a “playful perky puppy”? Helping them identify with the animals in the book may make them want to look at this book more often.
