How to leverage this book at different ages to spark meaningful conversations:
If your child is under 1
|Encourage your child to read by pointing out the adorable illustrations, and reading with a soothing voice. Be dramatic and fun. If you are up for it, try different voices and tones with the dialogues!|
If your child is 1-2 years old
|Read the simple phrases as they learn to talk. These positive phrases will become part of their vocabulary and will help guide them as they grow. Point out objects in the book to help them build vocabularies. Encourage them to act like the characters, and copy the emotions on their faces.|
If your child is 3-5 years old
|Open the discussion with your child. Ask them in each page: How does Kitty feel right now? Why does Kitty feel this way? Why does Mommy feel this way? What would you do if you are Kitty? All of these prompts help your little reader grow their vocabularies, and their abilities to identify and empathize with the character's emotions. This is also a great time to relate to situations you've experience in real life with your child, recount a time when there was conflict, and how you two resolved it together.|
