As a mother and child shop for groceries, there is a lot to do as the shopping cart goes up and down the aisles! Toddlers learn new concepts every day, and parents are their best (and favorite) teachers. In Banana for Two, a mother and child talk about the foods they are buying, and the child counts the items. As the toddler talks, his mother expands upon the child’s words encouraging language development. When counting the grocery items, the toddler is mastering “enumeration,” the ability to count items one-to-one with a specific number. Read along with your baby and turn a common experience into a delightful learning adventure.
