Suggested Books

Enjoy these age-appropriate books:

Games:

  • Bridge crossing! Cut large circles, squares and triangles from colored paper and lay them randomly on the floor (you might want to tape them so they don’t slide). Tell your children that they need to get from one point to another without stepping on the floor. They can only step on the shapes.  See how they respond to this challenge. They may step on the floor in the beginning, but will figure it out eventually. Later, you can make it more challenging by only stepping on red pieces or only on circles. Games like this help children develop problem-solving skills and also build their understanding of shapes and colors. 
  • Sock puppet characters! Get some old socks and a few markers to make some simple sock puppets. Play out the stories with the sock puppets or make your own story as you go along!
  • Print our "Vocabulary Words" from our website.  Show your child the card, read out the name (English or Spanish) and encourage your baby to imitate the sounds. Don’t be discouraged if your baby pays little attention, by being consistent they learn how to react and interact.
