Why does your toddler or preschooler ask for you to read the same book over and over? Children learn through repetition, and they need to experience a story many times to fully understand it. They also love to hear funny or rhyming words, and active or soothing rhythms, over and over and over--it's how they learn to talk, build their vocabulary, and learn to be creative with language! Every time you read that story again, they are growing their brains, and--most importantly--you are bringing them joy.
Of course, it's hard to bring joy if you've just had enough of The Baby Beebee Bird for the night. Stop in to see us: we are always happy to help you choose library books suited especially to your taste and your child's, so that you can have a changing stockpile to tempt your child to try something new. And don't forget our storytimes ...we'll read The Baby Beebee Bird for you. Though even we need a break from it too, from time to time.
What book does your child make you read over and over?
