Ok, so I am playing with them at the moment. Miss Mimi is having an afternoon nap (a rarity here) and I have only just sat down to open my Miss Mimi’s new books that arrived this morning. It’s very lucky for me that my job allows me to purchase books at half price, because I can’t seem to help myself when it comes to buying books for her!
‘Spot’s Noisy Walk’ by Eric Hill (check out the ‘Fun with Spot’ website here) with a sidebar of fun sounds is perfect for Miss Mimi at the moment as she is enjoying making up her own stories. You can either read about Spot’s adventures and match the picture in the story to the picture on the sound bar when prompted (great for memory skills, building vocab and generally just being silly mimicking the sounds together) or your child can make up their own Spot adventure and have a go at determining what sound would go with their tale. I like books with cause and effect and kids just love a good sound in a book, don’t they? Kids also don’t mind the freedom to make their own decisions I find.
This next book, while not a noisy one, still has a pretty awesome drawcard…pop ups!! I am excited to have my own copy of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ pop up book by Eric Carle (check out his site here) Please excuse my dismal attempt at photography but I had to share this with you. And by the way, The Learning Ladder offers this book at a discounted rate for people who host their own get together.
What are you guys playing today? Stuck for an idea?
