Same and Different

Your baby is probably very busy learning about everything! One thing your baby is learning about is how some things are the same and some things are different. This simple concept is the first step to understanding shapes, numbers and letters. As you explore with your baby, compare the toys you play with: "You have two balls! One is red and one is blue but they both roll." Talk a lot and enjoy exploring with your little one.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.

All the king's horses and all the king's men,

Couldn't put Humpty together again!
