Countdown to Un-Shushed Relaunch: 26 Days

  • Check out a wordless book from the library and let your child tell the story.

Yes, early literacy is developing even when there aren’t any words! Asking your child to tell you a story based on pictures works vocabulary and storytelling muscles your child didn’t even know they had. Instead of having words read to them, they are required to recover the word from their own memory — and find the most appropriate word to fit the pictures in the book! Is it a cat? Or is it a lion? Is he mad or furious? Why?

Remember to download your copy of the Quick Picks handout; this week, we’ll be Eating! Pretend eating, that is. And going on picnics, and enjoying breakfast, and making cakes… Don’t miss out.
