Today’s Parenting Tip:
Decide: To “read” books without words.
Practice: Go to the library and ask the librarian where to look for books without words. You can ask to see some by Barbara Lehman or David Wiesner as a start.
When you tell your child the story represented by the pictures in the books you selected, use words, character names, and details that are familiar to your child.
On some pages you can ask your child to tell what is happening and help tell the story.
Today’s Parenting Tip was inspired by our featured picture book, CLEVER JACK TAKES THE CAKE. Read the book to a child in your life each day as a reminder of what you are deciding and practicing that day.
Come back each day for another good parenting decision and how to practice it. (Each day’s activity will also be posted on the Daily Parenting Tips page for easy access.)
