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

PLAY

Read the Pictures

You don't always have to read the words in a book to your baby, sometimes you can read the pictures.  Making up a story to go with the pictures in a book is a fun way to share stories with your littlest one.


SING

Acka Backa Soda Cracker

(Gently bounce baby from side to side and lift on "up goes you" and hug on " I love you;" Instructions from "What'll I Do with the Baby-O? by Jane Cobb)

Acka Backa Soda Cracker, Acka Backa Boo,
Acka Backa Soda Cracker, up goes you!
Acka Backa Soda Cracker, Acka Backa Boo,
Acka Back Soda Cracker, I love you!
