Reindeer adores reading books. We spend a significant amount of each day reading together. This time is always initiated by Reindeer and we can go through four or five books four or five times each in one sitting.
We have books with textures, flaps and pictures covering stories, words, shapes, numbers, feelings, opposites, colours and animal noises (among other topics).
I was really surprised a couple of days ago when Reindeer began responding to the shape book by picking out the circle when asked. I’ve yet to try this outside the book, but it seems repeatable within the book. I’m going to see if we can get he same success with other shapes this week.
