Reading with infants and toddlers is a time for connecting, conversing, and learning. From language and literacy skills to early mathematics – there is a lot that little ones can learn from enjoying a book with their caregivers!
To help enhance storytime with the children in your care, you might enjoy the following free printable resources from LENA, an organization focused on early language and literacy.
These resources, available in both English and Spanish, can be used with any book to support meaningful conversations with infants and toddlers. Display them in your program’s book center and share with the families in your community!
