Mind Readers: By thinking out loud, we can raise children’s comprehension skills
“It’s toddler storytime: let the rumpus begin! Toddlers bound quickly into the room. One jumps over mom’s legs while waiting for the opening song. Some hop, others roam, and a few practically climb our unflappable colleague Janie. Even after getting most of their
wiggles out, many toddlers continue to float around
the room—until Janie begins to read one of her favorite
books, Owl Babies (Candlewick, 1996) by Martin Waddell.”
