Tell Stories Create stories, play make-believe and let your child be a storyteller.


Special Stories

There are few things more special to families than the day their baby is born. This important story isn't just for adults; it should be told to the baby too! Snuggle your baby and tell her about the day she was born, the day she came home, the day her family found out she was coming or any other story about her that is special to tell. Then tell it over and over again. Have grandparents, siblings and other family members tell these stories too. As your little one grows, she will know these important stories all about her!


I Bounce You Here

I bounce you here,

I bounce you there,

I bounce you, bounce you everywhere!
