The moms at Educare thought a lot about how to read a book to a toddler. Babies like board books, because at first all they see are the changing colors and textures when they flip the pages (some even give the book a good chew). Later, toddlers want to talk about the pictures on some of the pages (not necessarily in storybook order). Some children don’t want to listen to the book, they want to talk about it or tell their own story. A few moms admitted that it bothered them when their two-year-old wanted to talk the book instead of listening to the mother read. But everyone agreed that allowing a child tell his own story about the pictures was encouraging their imagination and a good thing.
