Story of the Day

I was over at Baby C's house playing! We were playing- construction together! Dramatic play is the first step towards reading. After we played it was time for his Pojos. We got ready for bed and we read a classic by Mercer Mayer, There is a Nightmare In My Closet. After I read it, Baby C took hold of the book and started his own reading. He read it back, nearly close to verbatim! It was incredible. This is another step towards reading as well.

Auntie ME then told Baby C that it was time for, The Story of the Day. They went off to Baby C's room and snuggled close together on the rocking chair. Baby C began to recount his day, starting from when he woke up!

What a beautiful thing they added to their bedtime routine. Remembering all the wonderful things that happened during the day when they were apart and when they were together.
