In the book, the mom goes around telling all of the animals to Hush! because the baby is sleeping. (One of the reasons, I like the book so much is that Wild Thing has a baby brother, so helping my energetic toddler learn to be quiet so the baby can sleep can be a challenge).
We looked around at what animals we had that were in the book and retold the story with these animals, adding each one to our storyboard paper.
|I also had Wild Thing use his magnet letters and look at the cover of the book to spell out the word, HUSH.|
Storytelling with toddlers encourages literacy and early reading skills. Plus, it's fun! Carrots Are Orange has a great storyboard activity on her site as well in which she and her toddler told their own story!
