Look for picture books with mama and baby animals. Babies will point to the mama horse and her foal or the cat with kittens. Joyously make animal noises as you look at each farm picture. Use animated voice tones and enthusiasm as you tell a story about a picture in the book. Encourage babies to make the animal sounds with you as you talk about each picture. You become a special friend-not only someone who comforts, cleans, and feeds, but someone who opens the amazing and surprising world of stories for an infant's delight.
