Be Silly and Build Literacy!

Book Cover Image of Moo baa la la laWe all feel a little silly clucking like chickens and snorting like pigs; but hearing and making animal sounds helps us hear different kinds of sounds in language. This develops literacy skills and reading readiness. At the same time, being silly and having fun with sounds and words makes reading fun, and fun with books is essential to developing a lifelong love of reading. So, forget about feeling foolish and practice your best moos, baas and oinks.  The sillier you sound, the more fun it is!

Lots of great picture books are filled with silly sounds.
Here are just a few to get you started:
