Storybooks Shaping Young Emotions

Storybooks Shaping Young Emotions begins by reading stories to unborn infants, starting the process of parent/child bonding.  The embryo knows the voices and sounds of its surroundings.  Emotions are happening already.  So to begin reading to your baby during pregnancy (Dad too!) develops a tie to those voices- intonations,emotions and fluctuations, outbursts, tears, frustration,  all of it!  All of life’s sounds!

Our son would read to his son while still in the womb.  His son was born very premature due to a ruptured blood vessel in the mothers womb.  This premature child of 2 lbs. desperately hung on to life and showed signs of unrest and uneasiness until Dad would read the same child books that had been read to him during pregnancy.  In hearing the sound of Dad’s voice the small young child would be calmed!  Read to these lives early.  Your sounds are their world. Keep reading to them.  They absorb everything!

There are certain books about a parent’s unconditional love for a child that are timeless–and this is one of them. (Baltimore’s Child 2010-01-20)
One of my all-time favorites. I cry every time I read it…. [The book] is a beautiful script about parenthood, a poignant parable about life and death, a testimony to when the roles of child and parent become blurry. The story reminds you that no matter how grown up you are, you’re always someone’s child; that no matter how “adult” you are, you’re never too old to be loved by your parents.  Available in Hardcover, Paperback, Kindle, New & Used Find it Here...

The 26 characters in this rhythmic, rhyming baby book are an alphabet with attitude. “A told b, and b told c, ‘I’ll meet you at the top of the coconut tree'”–which probably seemed like a good idea until the other 23 members of the gang decided to follow suit.  When X, Y and Z finally scramble up the trunk, however, the weight is too much, and down they all tumble in a colorful chaotic heap: “Chicka Chicka . . . BOOM! BOOM!” All the family members race to help, as one by one the letters recover…This nonsense verse delights with its deceptively simple narrative and repetition of catchy phrases.   Children, ages 2 – 6, will revel in the familiar alphabet.  FIND FAMILIARITY WITH ALPHABET FUN.
