A Talk & Read Activity for Babies

Baby's Big Day

Talk & Read Explore lots of words with your child.


Baby's Big Day

Babies are enthralled with big things because so many things are bigger than they are! Go for a walk and point out all the big things you see. But don't just call them big - there are so many interesting words you can use! Try tremendous, gigantic, enormous, huge and all the other words you know for big. Then go home and take a nap after your BIG day!


This is Big

This is big, big, big, (open hands wide)
And this is small, small, small. (hold hands close)
This is short, short, short, (hold hand close to the floor)
And this is tall, tall, tall. (hold hand above your head)

This is fast, fast, fast, (roll hands quickly)
And this is slow, slow, slow. (roll hands slowly)
This is yes, yes, yes, (nod head yes)
And this is no, no, no. (shake head no)

(Written by Melissa Depper, Arapahoe Public Library)
