Friday Reading Corner

Friday, March 27, 2015

Every Friday Hendrix and I go into his "library" and choose 4 books to focus on/read for the week. Reading to your baby teaches them about communication, builds listening, memory and so on. When reading to Hendrix I use many different emotions and sounds in order to keep him engaged. Babies learn and love repetition so this is why we focus on 4 books at a time. We have a lot of board books but have slowly started adding other books to our library.

This weeks book choices:
The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
Opposites by Sandra Boynton
Look Look! by Peter Linenthal
Little Monkey (touch and feel) by Katie Saunders

I grew up loving The Very Hungry Caterpillar so that was clearly my first choice of picking this weeks books. Moms have to enjoy storytime also! Of course if Hendrix chooses other books while we are playing or reading in his room, I will read them as well, but I mainly focus on the same 4 books for a week. Any book recommendations are greatly appreciated!
