The holidays

Leafing through the pages, show pictures and tell about what they depict: "Look at this baby and feel". Try to end the session up until the child began to act up. Reading should give him pleasure and joy.

Turn off the lights: Before switching off at bedtime light, tell the kid: "the Light has gone out." After some time, the child will understand what it means.
