Books like Puppies, Puppies Everywhere! by Cat Urbigkit demonstrate the specific names for things, like the difference between puppies and dogs. This helps your child learn new words and to better understand differences between similar things. While reading with your child, as well as in your day-to-day speech, point out the difference between baby and adult animals, and other different words. This is one way to increase children’s vocabulary.
