My real goal, however, with this book was to build baby bookworm's knowledge and comprehension. Children learn through experience but this experiential learning can be enhanced by laying the appropriate groundwork ahead of time. So, her trip to grandma's house and the various things that she will experience today will be heightened because she was first introduced to new vocabulary and concepts through her storybook!
So, before taking that trip to the zoo or the doctor's office, you can really advance your baby bookworm's learning experience by reading a relevant storybook beforehand. Make sure to talk about new vocabulary and concepts so that your baby bookworm can assimilate their new learning into their knowledge base. I plan on doing just that today!
