Notes from Storytime

What’s Happening in the Pictures?

Mama's Little BearsWhen you read Mama’s Little Bears by Nancy Tafuri, don’t just read the words but also talk about the pictures. Describe what is going on and leave time for your child to say something back. This interaction sets the stage for increased vocabulary and will help your child when it is time to read.
