For Babies

A Tell Stories Activity for Babies

Read the Pictures

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. You can read the pictures too! Making up a new story to go with the pictures in a book is an easy way to do some storytelling and makes the book twice as fun.


SING

Acka Backa Soda Cracker

(Gently bounce little one 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!
