Example text

So you do the inevitable (especially when the gift giver is present). You gamely read the thing in question, which may or may not have appendages and emit funny noises. You hope that will do it. But your child appears enchanted. ”). Later, at your leisure, you wrestle: Should I put this back in his book pile, or do the unimaginable and throw it away? A book. In the trash. Like the Nazis and the Branch Davidians. Here’s the thing that every newish parent quickly understands: very young children have inclinations that defy categorization or comprehension.

It is a complex give-and-take that falls somewhere along the interactive spectrum, depending on the specific book being read, the age of the child, the relationship of the adult and child, even the time of day. But in general, reading with small children is more sharing than telling, and more activity than lesson. With a one-year-old baby, you may be the one reading the book aloud, but the baby will probably want to turn the pages herself. With an enthusiastic toddler, reading can be a joyfully communal activity, resulting in an experience that is at once aural (listening as the adult reads), visual (looking at the pictures), vocal (identifying objects, imitating animal sounds, joining in on a text’s familiar refrain, asking questions about or commenting on story or art), and kinetic (pointing at pictured objects, mimicking a character, acting out a Mother Goose rhyme).

One, the picture book is an object, but once opened, it is an experience, one that unfolds through time. Two, picture books are intended for children (a seemingly obvious statement, but you’d be surprised: current marketplace forces mean that most children’s books are sold through large bookstores, and so picture books are often pitched toward the adult buyer rather than the child reader). And three, picture books that work tend to have insight into what makes kids tick at different developmental stages — and many of the best push through those stages to help kids move to the next level of independence.
