Tuesday for Twos:The Baby’s Lap Book
|September 13, 2011||Posted by Miss Shari under Early Literacy, Parent Child, Toddlers & Twos|
This Tuesday For Twos feature, is a must have on Miss Shari’s list. For new moms, infant & toddler teachers/caregivers, a great keepsake or baby shower gift – The Baby’s Lap Book illustrated by Kay Chorao – this is a wonderful first book for infants and toddlers.
The Baby’s Lap Book beautifully illustrated by Kay Chorao, is filled with over 50 traditional Mother Goose nursery rhymes. Here at The Story Carpet, it cannot be emphasized enough that Mother Goose, Fairy Tales and traditional nursery rhymes are iconic – they are part of an oral and written tradition that has kept literacy at the forefront of education for hundreds of years. Their importance in literacy development is invaluable. That is why many libraries have allowed and expanded on traditional story time; many now have “Lapsit” story times for infant and toddlers.
In just three minutes you can share ten classic nursery rhymes like:
This Little Pig – Tickly, Tickly – Pat A Cake – Baa, Baa, Black Sheep – Little Boy Blue – Sing a Song of Sixpence – Mary Had a Little Lamb and Little Bo Peep. These few minutes can build a lifetime of reading success, love of reading & books and improve vocabulary and literacy for your infant and toddler.
The Baby’s Lap Book is a must have and will end up on Miss Shari’s Favorites; each time I think I have heard them all, I discover another Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme. Always enjoyable, sometimes controversial, yet always beloved will be the traditional nursery rhymes that have shaped language for centuries.
