This Month’s Book: íLibro! Book!
Our Cover to Cover Book of the Month for April is íLibro! Book!  by Kristine O’Connell George. This fun book demonstrates just how much children LOVE books!   


A book about a book…how wonderful, especially because the book is SO loved!  While reading ¡Libro! Book!  By  Kristine O’Connell George, talk to your child about a book or a topicthat is special to them. “You love dinosaurs as much as this child loves the book! I wonder if we could find you a special book  about dinosaurs that you can carry around. Tuning into your child’s interest will have your little one excited  about learning and reading!  And remember the Make Way For Books app has so many wonderful high quality children’s books to choose from!


Stomp  around the room with your child to the song, We Are Monsters! You can change the word “monsters” to “dinosaurs” and pretend to be dinosaurs, or “elephants”…any heavy animal! Find the song here: https://youtu.be/rkCpyuEXt40.



Children love to imitate their parents, it helps them learn! So, let your child be the grown up, like the child who reads to the cat and the baby. Encourage your child to read to a sibling, a pet, or a favorite stuffed animal. Don’t worry that they aren’t reading the words in the book, encourage them to tell the story by describing the illustrations!



The child in this book found a secret hiding place to read— under the table! Gather your blankets and sheets and build a fort with your child to create a fun place to read together!
