The older B gets, the more fun it is to test her and see what she knows the names of (anything and everything really, and she recently surprised me with “ephalent.”) Like elephants, her love for animals is large– and she loves making the sounds they make. My favorite is her impression of a cat.
It goes something like this… *scrunched face* *deep breath*…
“R—e—aowww!” She looks really sad when she does it, but at the same time she couldn’t be cuter.
What’s your favorite toddler-made animal sound?
Take a second and admire the animals on the front cover of Usborne Very First Words: Animals. How. CUTE. In this board book, your little one will learn the names of many animals, where they live (from the farm to the ocean and around the world,) and even some of the sounds they make. Sprinkled throughout the book are words describing a certain part of the adorable animals– like whiskers, shell, trunk or fin.
Kiddos will love naming (and perhaps pretending to be) all 65 cuddly looking animals and learning the difference between a flipper and a tail. 🙂
Get ready to practice your dolphin noise…
