Again and Again

Again! by Emily GravettYou may find that when your children like a book, they will want to hear it over and over again. Repetition helps children to better understand the plot of the story, and also the individual words in the story. Try pointing out different words or pictures each time you read the story. This helps to build children’s vocabulary.

Peek-a-Moo!

Peek-a-pet!Making animal sounds is so much fun! In the book Peek-a-Pet! by Marie Torres Cimarusti, children will have fun guessing the animal, opening the flap, and making the animal sounds. Animal sounds are a great way to develop phonological awareness skills that will help children sound out words when they are learning to read.
