The attention paid to the miracle of a baby and the growth of a toddler isn’t always appreciated – especially by siblings. But when an older child reads to a younger one great things happen!
With Our Superbaby! they will both enjoy fun interactions as they read along with mermaids and macaws, vultures and volcanos, dragons and dolphins, ogres and eagles.
Together they’ll explore the magic in everyday events – like eating and sleeping – and ordinary behaviours – like screaming and crying.
As well as the positive side effects on their reading skills – relationships will deepen and develop – and as the last page says –
When you smile chocolate melts – and so do we!
