If you're going to be out and about this summer, enjoying the sunshine, bring a book!
We have books about places like the beach or the zoo, books about the library and the museum, and books about things you might travel on, like the subway or a plane. We have books about things you might see, like butterflies or ballet.
While you're reading, make sure you are making connections to your child's memories or expectations. Ask lots of questions about concepts, emotions, and facts, such as "What did that painting remind you of?" or "What colors do you see on the subways?" or "What sound does a monkey make?"
This talking and reading associated with place and experience is a great way to learn to enjoy reading, connect with each other, and have a deeper experience this summer!
