Reading Together


Posted on: March 15, 2009

index1I am a strong believer in learning important lessons through books.  This may be because some of my favorite books growing up were The Berenstain Bears.  These days you can find a lot of books to help your child transition through hard times and learn about important events coming up in their lives.  There are great books on toilet training, moving from a crib to a bed, getting rid of the pacifier, or welcoming a new baby for toddlers and preschoolers.

I recently came across a series of board books by Elizabeth Verdick for toddlers that deal with many different issues parents may need a little extra help with.  Each comes with tips for parents and are well illustrated and have simple text toddlers will be able to understand.  They are a great way to help toddlers who are having difficulty with different situations. 

Naptime by Elizabeth Verdick. This is a great book about the importance of naping.  I’ve read it to my daughter because she recently has had some trouble napping. 

Tails Are Not for Pulling by Elizabeth Verdick. I also read this to my daughter to teach not to pull our cat’s tails.  This along with some other good books helped her learn that she was hurting the cats and she doesn’t (usually) pull their tails anymore.

Here are other titles by Elizabeth Verdick:

Bye-bye Time

Clean-up Time

Listening Time

Diapers are not Forever

Pacifiers are not Forever

Germs are not for Sharing

Words are not for Hurting

Feet are not for Kicking
