youtube It!

As a fun supplement to reading books with my son, I sometimes accompany the topic we read about with a youtube video. For example, if we're reading about jet planes and helicopters landing and taking off, I look it up on youtube. If there is a great video of a plane taking off into the big, blue sky, then I will show it to him.

Think about fun topics your child is curious about -jumping kangaroos, kids riding bikes with training wheels, astronauts, flower girls walking down the aisle... it could be a fun complement to your storytelling time.

I recommend watching the video first before showing it to your child in order to make sure it's good content. Keep viewings brief & related to the topic your child is learning about.

Explore and enjoy!
