Stories help your child learn how to talk and explain things. We’re Going On A Bear Hunt is an easy, rhyming children’s book that they’ll enjoy because it repeats and has fun sounds they can act out.
Book time is perfect for a quiet moment, when your child isn’t tired or hungry. This helps them concentrate on the story. Try to spend some time looking at a book each day.
Use your finger to show your child where in the story you are. This will help them understand that the words on the page are telling the story, which helps prepare them for reading.
