BEFORE READING

DURING READING

  1. As you read the book to your child, point to the pictures as you say the words. As you talk about the cat that stretches, also talk about how the cat is soft and furry, makes cat sounds like “meow,” etc. For each object, describe to your child what it sounds, feels, smells, looks like.
  2. As you read the book with your child, do the motions suggested in the book (hands reach, smile, stretch, etc.), and have your child do them also.

AFTER READING

  1. To extend the book experience, have physical objects of the ones in the book to show your child as you re-read the pages (plastic car, stuffed animal, plant, etc.), and let your child explore the objects.
