Reading to active babies who don’t want to sit still

Do you have an active baby that doesn’t want to sit still while you read to them? This short article has some suggestions on how to help get your baby interested. I think one of the most important things in the article was the reminder that there’s no “right” way to read to a baby. I also liked the suggestion of covering up an image and then asking the baby or young child where it is.

What works for you?

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.

    I always tell parents at my library to include tough little board books or cloth books in the play bucket. Everything’s a toy at that age, and by playing, they figure out how a book works.
