Secrets of the Apple Tree

๐ŸŒˆ Book Reading ๐ŸŒˆ

Nicholas and I have always loved reading books to our children! Book reading has so many benefits, including:

๐Ÿ“š Expanding vocabulary

๐Ÿ“– Teaching empathy

๐Ÿ“š Promoting a longer attention span

๐Ÿ“– Providing opportunities for bonding

๐Ÿ“š Improving listening and critical thinking skills

๐Ÿ“– Expanding receptive and expressive language

... And the list goes on and on!

Just as we read books about "Starting to use the potty" or "Getting ready for a new sibling", we can do the same thing with trying new foods! We utilize books in these situations to be able to bring positivity to what initially can be negative. Books have a way of using color, creativity, and engagement that can make foods more fun.

"Secrets of the Apple Tree ( A Shine-A-Light book)" from @usborne_books has been one of the favorites in our house. It never gets old being able to use a flashlight to uncover hidden items in the pictures. In this book, children learn about apples, apple trees, a variety of animals/insects, different habitats, and more. After reading this, you can take an apple, cut it in half, and let your child explore its different parts โ€“ skin, seeds, core, stem, and flesh.

The amount of language stimulation that can be found in books is quite amazing, when you sit down and look at all of the different learning opportunities that can be provided. We aren't just simply saying words when we read to our children, but we are truly enriching their minds and lives with so much more. ๐Ÿ“š
