Books start young kids off with storytelling, sensory, verbal, and pre-reading skills.
The perfect book for bedtime or any time kids need a hug! Kids will love tucking each baby animal into the loving hug of its parent as they read along with this illustrated 12-page board book with pockets on each spread. Five play tags (penguin, lion, elephant, monkey, baby) are attached to the book with colourful ribbons. Tuck the tags into the pockets near the arms of the matching grown-ups to put them as they read words of encouragement and comfort. Tags store in a pocket at the front of the book between readings. Pediatricians recommend toys and books that encourage rich interactions between caregiver and child.
Use this tether book to engage in conversations with your child as they play. Object play with manipulatives such as the tags in these books helps develop hand-eye coordination and adds a tangible, physical component to kids' learning. This book makes a great gift for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers, ages 12 months and up.
