Our September Book of the Month
“This month, I’m excited to share with you Say Hello to the Sun as my 0–2 Book of the Month choice. Since the very first Baby Sensory class started in 2003, thousands of babies have enjoyed cuddling up and joining in with the Say Hello to the Sun chant. Now you can snuggle up and bond at home with your little one (or use in an Early Years context), as you stimulate their visual and vocabulary skills by reading aloud or singing the chant as you share the vibrant and eye-catching illustrations. Encourage them to join in with the action rhymes (shown for you on every page) and note the calming influence of the words as they move from play to rest.
Baby Sensory was founded by Dr Lin Day, one of the UK’s leading parenting experts and a renowned author within the field of childcare and education. She states that ‘research shows that reading to your baby boosts brain activity, improves memory, promotes speech and language, and enhances empathy. Best of all, when you read to your baby and she listens, your brains synchronize as one!’”
