6 to 11 Months Concept

More, More, More Said the Baby is an award-winning children's book; it was awarded the Caldecott Honor in 1991. This board book has three adorable love stories that show a daddy, a grandma and a mama showering their love and affection on their baby. It will become a favorite for you and your baby for months and even years to come.

Before, During and After Reading

Oral Language

Show your baby the cover of the book. Count the babies in the illustration. Say the title of the book. 

Oral Language

As you read the stories, act out the actions with your child. Talk about the body parts mentioned in the story and show your baby where they are on his body. You will have a hard time resisting cuddling with your baby, giving a belly button kiss, rocking him and kissing his beautiful eyes just like in the stories.

Letter Knowledge and Print Awareness

Leave the board book in a place where your baby can pick it up and look at it independently. This early exploration and exposure to books will be very beneficial to your baby’s development of pre-reading skills in the future. Even though you are not directly teaching about letters at this age, your child is learning a lot through this natural and authentic exposure to print.
