Cornelius P. Mud, Are You Ready for Baby?

Cornelius P. Mud, Are You Ready for Baby?In the book Cornelius P. Mud, Are You Ready for Baby? by Barney Saltzberg, Cornelius’s mother keeps telling him that his baby sibling is still too young to do things with him by saying, “No, not yet!” over and over again.  As you read with children, having them say a repeated phrase with you throughout the book helps to keep them involved in the story.  This is one way that you can support print motivation.

Leaf Man

Leaf Man

Practice the narrative skill with your child by reading the book Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert and creating your own leaf man. Once you have created him, talk about what adventures he might have and write them down so you can retell them again later.
