Now my daughter is 10 months old. She met with the book when she was one month old. On this day, my mother gave the baby the first cartons for babies. I remember that my mother objected, they say, if it is not a bit early to read a month-old child, but she convinced me that it’s better to get acquainted with the book as soon as possible.
Since then, I have allocated from three to ten minutes every day for reading books to daughters. Since, at this age, she still did not know how to sit, I lay down next to her, opened the book and read, told, showed. The reaction of the baby I was very surprised. She watched and listened to me with great interest. No rattle could lure her attention for such a long time.
Over time, our books began to change from small cardboard to large fat books of the older age group. I’ll tell you about our favorite books, starting from the moment of our acquaintance with them.
Cardboard books for kids
There are poems, songs, fairy tales, rashes, etc. We liked it more with rats for the little ones. Pages are cardboard, which will save the book from playful little children’s pens. Here are our books:
There are such ones, the daughter loves them, as she can easily turn the pages (the last page is in the form of an animal, which helps her view the book). I do not like computer pictures from them.
Almost every day we teach animals. I show eyes, ears, etc. I also voice myself as they growl, squeak, meow and bark. These books help me in this. There are certainly animal cards, but I haven’t bought them yet.
Books to read
Somewhere from the months of 8, my daughter has not been sitting in place for more than ten seconds, even while watching a book. Therefore, reading a long text does not work yet. She quickly loses interest and crawls for a new toy. But sometimes we open these books and I read them to her.
Well, of course they are our favorite. While the daughter is not pressing the buttons yet, she loves to listen. I don’t really like them, I don’t often show them to my daughter.
Fairy tale books for older children
These books were presented to us. They are definitely not for us now. I plan to read them before bed, after two years or older. While lying, waiting for their turn.
This is our recent gift from great-grandmother. Breaking the pages is almost impossible, as cutting oneself, which is very important. It is light, flipped over by a child easily. The only thing is that the tale in the book is long and not interesting for us, but you can see the pictures
Our favorite activity is reading.
I am very glad that my daughter loved the book. Perhaps because I showed her to her at such an early age. I hope this love will be long and for life.
And what books do you read to your kids?
