Busy Books for Busy Kids

It seems that as soon as toddlers can walk they are constantly on the move! This is a good thing. Their bodies are working hard to master movement which will allow their brains to do more complex things like talk, read and solve problems. Reading time doesn't have to stop just because your little one is so busy, just read for shorter periods of time, read while your child is playing and choose books that encourage them to move around. And don't worry, that special quiet reading time will come back!


SING

Head and Shoulders, Knees, and Toes

(Point to the body part as you sing it.)

Head and shoulders,
Knees and toes, knees and toes.
Head and shoulders,
Knees and toes, knees and toes.
Eyes and ears and mouth and nose,
Head and shoulders,
Knees and toes, knees and toes.
