Before, During and After Reading
Before you begin, play a little game of Peek-a-Boo with your baby.
The photographs show babies making various expressions including laughing, crying, pouting, yawning and yelling. First, show your baby a photograph, and then imitate the facial expression yourself. Watch to see if your baby will imitate you! Continue as long as your baby remains engaged and interested.
Describe your baby’s facial expressions as she displays them throughout the day. For example: I see your pretty smile. I see you laughing! I think you are happy.
