This is exactly why you need to read to your children. Though I haven’t met a parent who doesn’t, but this is what happens when you read to your child just about every night.
Dinosaur is not reading, but memorizing what is on each page. He knows what the characters are saying and how they are speaking. I have asked him varying levels of comprehension questions from what is happening to what will happen next or why does the character feel that way.
You do this with your child every night and soon, they will be reading the books to you. Dinosaur now even points to the words. as I read. Sure he has no clue what the letters spell, but he knows they mean something. Even better when words are large font and bold, we can really focus on them.
So here is Dinosaur reading No, David by David Shannon
Turn down your volume as Dino only has two volumes…loud and louder.
Dinosaur reading Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What do you Hear? by Eric Carle I love how he says all the names of the animals and the sounds they make.
This makes me quite proud and I know his love of books and learning will continue as he gets older.
How do your kid(s) show their love a book or books you have read for them? Do they have any favorites?
