Pip Squeak is reading Nicole Smee’s “Gesichter machen”. It is a lovely book – that tells the story of a little boy playing with his ball when the big bear comes… each page or stage of the story is accompanied by a “Happy Face” or a “Surprised Face” or a “Scared Face” etc – perfect for talking to your children about emotions, why we feel them (the bear is coming: scared) and how we show them on our face (eyer brows up, mouth down). At the end the little reader is rewarded with their own face in a mirror.
Both Red Ted (2.5yrs) and Pip Squeak (7mths) benefit from the book. Pip Squeak LOVES the faces and of course the mirror and Red Ted listens to the stories and learns about emotions. It is lovely how they are currently enjoying a range of books together, albeit for different reason!
A perfect session on Emotions in the Red Ted household!
