It's Read Aloud Wednesday in celebration of the Week of the Young Child! Try this activity with your young child and share a picture on our Facebook page!
Hold your child on your lap. Hold the book "Pat the Bunny" by Dorothy Kunhardt in front of your child and read the title to him.
After you have read the title, using simple words, tell your child about the picture on the cover of the book. You might say, "Look, there is a bunny," while pointing to the picture of the bunny on the cover. Help your child to touch the bunny. If your child is old enough, encourage him to say bunny with you.
Read the book to your child, pointing to the pictures and telling your child about them.
Let your child turn the pages of the book, and read at his own pace. If he is turning pages quickly, just talk about the pictures. If he is turning them slowly, read the words and talk about the pictures.
