It's a Little Baby
It is great to encourage babies to interact with books – look how this dad gives his daughter time to look at the book before they begin. During the reading, he also lets her hit the book and handle the pages – this is a great way for babies to learn how books work.
Adding in simple actions also helps your baby learn the meanings of words. Taking the baby’s hands and gently leading in the actions is a lovely way for babies to learn how to do the action. By doing the action yourself, babies will also see what it looks like. Both experiencing, and watching, helps a child make sense of the story.
This is a lovely rhyming book and it is also a song. Visit Pan Macmillan's website to hear the song. Your baby will love singing along with the story!
