The Dr. Seuss ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book! is a fun tongue twister to read to Fleur.
Since she is starting to read, I wanted to help associate the letters with things more… tangible.
So, when it returned to a bedtime reading staple the other day, I included her name in the appropriate letter. She commented about it, so the next time I included her cousin. She commented about both.
Now, I as I read, I am trying to anticipate the next letter and include for her a person’s name in the appropriate letter. The reaction tells me she is engaged more than when I read it without the personal connection.
Hopefully, that game is the kind of brain game appropriate to staving off my own impending dementia? I’m multi-tasking reading and also searching for names.
