Synopsis

Read Me a Story Everything You Need to Enjoy Books with Your Baby by Alison Davies

It includes practical, tried and tested activities and games that parents can easily incorporate into reading time for maximum effect and enjoyment. While other books on the market focus on how to read to babies this book takes the process a step further by showing parents how they can come up with storytelling activities and creative suggestions to promote pre-reading and numeracy skills with their toddler. It includes a range of popular early years books covering different themes such as potty training, sharing toys, eating habits, playing nicely and then bigger issues like starting school, making friends, new siblings, children who are different, bereavement etc. Parents can dip into the books at any point for hints, tips and practical advice that they can easily do with the resources they have at home.
