It's about time you take story-time to another level.
How do we achieve this?
Did you know that by reading interactively, you increase your baby's understanding of the world and you build their vocabulary?
Here are some tips on WHY you should start reading outside of the "box":
1. Boost Emotional IQ
By pointing out and naming the details on every page, objects, characters, even colors you are boosting your child's emotional IQ. When you make sound effects and dramatize the voices and emotions you are moving them up another level.
A great example of this is, if one of the characters is happy in your story, laugh and hug your child.
2. Decode Body Language
You will be reading to a mostly mute audience for the first six months, so gauge your baby's interest by watching for signs.
- If he/she wiggles or seems to follow along, keep it up!
- If he/she focuses on something else or sounds unhappy, well, you gave it a go, but that is enough for today.
3. Bust the Fussies
Introducing touchy-feely books with flaps, fabric, or levers provides your older baby with something to physically interact with. Stash a few in the kitchen, the bathroom, the car and the diaper bag to hand over if he/she is bored or grumpy.
