Give a child a book and a whole world opens up to that child.
I’m paraphrasing something I have heard from others. Books are treasures. Books open up new worlds for children and adults. In our family, books are an integral part of the learning process. Learning never stops does it?
From time to time one of my children will become enraptured by a book. My daughter would not put down a series of books about a funny bunny. She read those books over and over again. She acted out the stories from the books. She drew pictures based on what she heard as I read to the books to her or from what she saw in the pictures. Simply put, she lived, ate, and breathed in these books.
As a parent, I want to pass on my love of books to my children. One fun way of extending the learning process with your children is to build on a favorite story with outside activities. For instance, if you are reading “The Wheels on the Bus” to your child, sing the song to your child, act out the song, talk about buses, or find another book from the library about transportation. Kids love when learning spills from books to all parts of their world.
Recently, I was sent a selection of products to review. The Kidz Entertainment Inc. sells books with companion toys and games. For instance, my daughter loved the Show Cat Package. This set comes with the oh-so-elegant white furry Show Cat. This adorable cat comes in a see-through carrying case with a brightly illustrated picture book, an award-winning CD, and a companion coloring book. This set is the perfect vehicle for allowing your child to explore on a multisensory level. part of the appeal of the books is that the author has included facts and figures about the breeds of cats. Can’t you see your child groooving to the tunes on the CD? Coloring a picture of a kitty for Grandma? Begging to read the book at bedtime? Swinging and twirling with the kitty purse on her shoulder? My children love to do this!
