Using animal sounds is a great way to get your child excited about story time.
When you read about an animal, make the noise the animal makes. Dogs go ‘woof’ and tigers ‘rooooaaar’. Praise your child if they try to join in.
If you’re making up your own story, you can keep it simple. Try starting with: “On our walk today, we met a hissing snake.” Make the noise of the snake. Then do it again with a different animal. How many can you think of?
Feel free to reread your child’s favourite books or retell stories they like. Children like to hear their favourites often.
