I could spend hours just gazing at all the pictures getting lost in each one. Every page holds it's own story. There are so many wonderful items tucked into each page for kids to explore and discover. I remember reading Richard Scary books as a kid and spending hours making up my own stories for the multitude of mini scenes within the page and falling asleep book in hand. Every kid should have the chance to day dream like that.
I learned from reading to the twins that their attention often wanders unless you engage them in the story, encourage them to participate. At that time, they were learning to count. So, when they wiggled and squirmed and were about to find something else to do, I asked them to count items on the page or look for colored objects or animals. It worked really well and kept them focused on the book. As you'll see by watching the video, I read for Adam in the very same way - keep them enthralled & learning!
This is my first video sans puppets. I had a blast reading it. I hope you enjoy!
