THIS or THAT
THIS or THAT: A BUSY MORNING | Wendy Kronick
482 posts | 4 read | 3 to read
This or That: A Busy Morning is the first in a series of entertaining books that use rhyme to encourage your baby to be involved in day-to-day choices. Rather than having the book read to them, babies are actively involved in making choices as they go through the story with their parents or caregiver. The adult reader also has the joy of discovering the excitement and cooperation that choice-giving creates in young children. By encouraging this active participation with your baby, you are increasing your childs logical thinking skills, which will lead to more confidence and engagement with others. The adorable illustrations, combined with rhymes centering on a babys typical daily activity, make this sure to become one of the babys favorites while providing plenty of quality time and fun in which to bond. This series was conceived by early childhood development expert Wendy Kronick, a RIE Associate, who has taught Parent-Infant GuidanceTM classes for almost twenty years and privately consulted with hundreds of families. Together with her writing partner, Susan Beauchene, they have drawn on their combined years of experience with children to create an entertaining series of books about typical parent-child activities that demonstrate how to give choices. A Busy Morning is their debut.

For most of these, the real answer would be “yes.” 😎

Ruthiella Yes to “Yes”! 😂 It‘s a real “all of the above” for me too. (edited) 5mo

There are more that were very close to ties, but there were two that I honestly can't say I have even the slightest preference.

Getting to know you a bit more. What would your preference be, exploring the wilds or cosying up in a den? 😊🤔

@Clwojick @StayCurious

AllDebooks I'm equal parts wild over warmer months and hibernate over winter, quite literally. 9mo
gossamerchild Definitely hibernating! Perhaps because this question is being posed at the beginning of the cold season, though I do like adventuring, too. But not in October :-D 9mo

#HHS #HauntedHallowSwap #ThisOrThat

I‘m late to the party with this one and I‘m really not sure how useful it is but what I‘ve done is cross out what I DO NOT LIKE. Way more informative, right?!
I really am not a fan of pumpkin OR pumpkin spice (actually any hot drinks, so hot chocolate also had to go).
But I really can‘t choose between so many of these: books and movies, cats and bats, Frankie and Dracula? Yep, like it all.
