Book of the week this week is actually a series of books, Alison Lester’s Talk to the Animals series.
We started reading these stories to Carter when he received them as a present when he was four months old and they quickly became a favourite! Why? The repetition became very familiar, and he began to join in when we would make the animal noises. They are also rhyming stories so he began to predict the words and it encouraged him to participate. Stories that allow children to get involved increases engagement and makes reading a fun activity that can be enjoyed by both toddler and parent.
Carter loves animals, so this was an added bonus for us!!
Get your animal voices ready mums and dads, you will love these books!
