Say Hello Like This
This book is all about having fun with the animal voices. Use your best silly voices like the dad in this video, and enjoy your child’s reaction. Like the family in the video, you can also add a few actions, like bouncing or jumping.
You may notice how one of the twins is happy to sit, but the other is quite wriggly and gets up and down through the story. This is very typical behaviour for toddlers as they become more mobile. Notice how the dad carries on reading, and every once in a while turns the page so that his daughter can still see too. What’s most important is this family is having fun sharing a book together. At the end, they make sure they go through all of the animals and say ‘hello’! This is great for helping children to develop their memory and knowledge of different animals.
