Our Program
Books to Love and Explore

Books are a perfect way to engage children and stimulate their language.

Books are also a great way to connect with your child.  Take the time to have your child tell you about the story in his own words using his own imagination.

Ask questions to guide your child through the process of “story telling”.  This experience will open up your eyes to what your child thinks, knows and imagines.

Here is a brief list of books that are perfect for language stimulation. Please keep in mind that this list is often updated.  If you have a book you love and would like to share, please send me a message, I want to know about it!
