Extending this activity

  • -Get a stack of books and play a guessing game using the parts of the book. For example: "I spy a book that has a yellow spine." "I spy a title with only one word." "I spy a white cover with a picture of a girl on it."

    -Read the book "Goodnight Gorilla" with your child. Although there is not much text on each page, try and 'read' what you think each animal and human might be thinking. You can even use different voices for each character!

Adjust for an older child

An older child might be starting to read and recognize familiar words, especially names. Try reading one of these familiar words incorrectly, and let the child find the correct word on the page.

Adjust for a younger child

Go through a book together, looking at the pictures. If the book has a lot of pictures of dogs, you might say, "This book seems to be about cats. Is that what it is about?" Let the child correct you!
