Chances are you have a copy of Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle’s Polar Bear Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?
Here’s one of the games we recommend in Read It! Play It! with Babies and Toddlers that you play after you share the book with your child.
I Went to the Zoo
Borrow the refrain of “Polar Bear, Polar Bear…” as you pull your child’s toy animals out one at a time. Before long your child will be adding animals as you both say…”I went to the zoo and what did I hear? A little lion growling at me!”
Make a “zoo” for the animals with a collection of shoe boxes or blocks that your child can continue to play with alone.
