Phonological awareness means learning about sounds in words. Hearing and learning animal sounds helps children hear different kinds of sounds. Show your child pictures of different animals in books and demonstrate what sound they make. Can You Growl Like a Bear? by John Butler and Who Hoots? by Katie Davis are two great titles that will inspire you and your little one to play with animal noises. Or take a trip to a local farm or zoo to have them hear the animal sounds in person!
