Expanding Your Childs Horizons

Books are best for babies

Anything by Dr Seuss, for example starting with One Fish Two Fish, moving up to Fox in Socks, then The Cat in the Hat, and the Cat Came Back, then the older ones still, like Horton Hatches an Egg and Horton Hears a Who! (even these work with 3 year-olds or less) and on to As I Walked Down Mulberry Street, The Sneetches, Yertle the Turtle, and Oh, The Places You'll Go!

You can also look for books from Theodore LeSieg (an anagram of Dr Seuss's real name) such as Wacky Wednesday.

Other recommended authors:

There are also some great iPad apps, as for Sandra Boynton's books, Blue Hat, Moo Ba La and Going to Bed, which derive from the books but allow children to uncover or move things by touching the screen: quite a motivator for learning. Also look for the iPad application The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, which is a wonderful animated story (with text visible and read by the narrator) about the magic and the tradition of books.
