Ben definitely loves his books. I think reading for him really helps improve his vocabs. He gets bored with his toys but he reads his books again and again everyday. He has picked up and learnt many things especially animals and objects from his books. These days, he’d open his book, points the animals and say out their names himself.
So far, the animals that he can name are ba ba sheep, moo moo, horse, cat, dog, horse, lion, rabbit, frog, fly, duck, bird, fish, crab, monkey, pig, butterfly (he sounds firefly), elephant, dinosaur (nosour). The objects & cartoons he say are car, bus, star, moon, doughnut, clock, watch, door, spec, ball, hair, nose, ear, eye, hand, leg, toes, Elmo, Barney, Pocoyo, Shrek 2, Bop. Shrek must be Shrek 2.
Sometimes, he surprises us with the new words that we did not teach him. Today, we let him see his photos on his blog and he surprised us saying “sweep floor” and “read book” when he saw the ones he was sweping and reading.
He also likes to see carton corner in newspaper or any other books which attract him. Sometimes, he’d also see photo albums and point-on and say daddy, ma ma, ben ben, ne nek, grand ma, pwar pwar, ko ko, ma ma, whom he is familiar with.
He sometimes see the book upside down but can name them correctly.
Looking into the mirror.
