Bedtime Stories For Babies And Toddlers (blog entry): Narratives that are felt use to frighten me. Caregivers do not consistently keep the little ones from coming up and catching the felt pieces right off the board, which makes it hard to finish the story or rhyme. One thing has recently given you a fantastic success of sanity, plus a much-needed reminder that I'm not the only man who has a toddler in her life who occasionally must fight the urge to throw herself in front of a speeding bus: Toddler: Real-life Stories of Those Fickle, Irrational, Urgent, Tiny People They Love, edited by Jennifer Margulis. It makes a fantastic gift for anybody who has a toddler ruling their life, so get it, read it, and spread it about. A narrative every household will recognise.
Now they can not wait to read the novel The Happiest Toddler on the Block to get suggestions that are helpful for the children in your family and in your practice. The(using toddlerese" to connect along with your kid) was consistently relayed, cohesive and universally appealing. They observed real parents dealing with REALLY actual children in the types of situations they all encounter (fighting over toys, going to bed, etc etc). The gossiping works like a charm on kids practically any age. The earlier narrative of aP is below.
Coincidentally (or not), at 18-months-old (Toddler Story Time is for children 18 to 36 months old), Charlotte did indeed stop pushing novels off the shelf and started sitting in your own lap and listening to Rachel the Librarian read through the selected books. Toddler Story Time can be obtained in most the local libraries of NYPL. Oh, and do add a loud 'The End' as you finish your story - children love it!
For younger toddlers (12 to 24 months) you will want sturdy board books with pictures (especially photos) of kids doing the things they do every day. Kids this age like novels about kids, families, and creatures. You might find that story time turns into singalong time. Read- aloud time isn't the only opportunity children should have to spend time with publications -- toddlers love to choose and look at books on their own.
It can take quite a long time for the toddler to comprehend this intangible notion that is super - see a representation of something they know, say the name of the thing - and this phase, as you're seeing, really can't be bypassed. Ice cream!" (or anything you understand excites the toddle in real life) while pointing in a photo of it might be a little more riveting. Read alouds are followed by means of a snack and general.
Your eighteen month old just started going through his novel phase, and your older son did the same at that age. They haven't even really learned to identify images on the page with real objects after all. At fifteen months I'd be happy with just becoming comfortable with holding a book and sitting on your lap, and anything beyond that is a bonus. You let the toddler turn to another page and choose the novel.
