Malorie is a two-year-old, but initially you can start looking at books, when babies four to six month old, little simple books with one picture on each page is fabulous to engage a child in looking and paying attention to books.
As we get a little older, we can proceed with books that have more pictures and we can engage this little one and up there’s a green frog rabbit, where’s a chick good job, I see eyes touch the eyes, the baby’s eyes, blue eyes.
As we proceed Mallory’s almost this is a fabulous book for a two-year-old, because we get to have a look at lots of pictures and start pointing and finding and talking about it, I see a tiger where’s he is roaring.
Let’s find the Frog, do I see frogs? What does the Frog say? Let’s turn to the page, you can do fabulous things with a book and spend lots of time, the important thing is engaging with your child, we’re going to play with bubbles, this is so fun, you can play with bubbles with different age children.
