For Toddlers

Wordless Books

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


Wordless Books

Wordless books can sometimes be a little overwhelming for adults, but they are fun to share with kids and offer so many opportunities for storytelling. When you read a book without words, tell the story together. If your child points and says, "dog," talk about the dog and what it is doing. Give lots of time for your child to look at the pictures and try to figure out what's happening.


Where Has My Little Dog Gone

Oh, where, oh, where has my little dog gone?
Oh, where, oh, where can he be?
With his ears cut short and his tail cut long,
Oh, where, oh, where can he be?
