Tips:

  • Ask them what they already know, what have they noticed?

  • Acknowledge their feelings and things they have noticed

  • Break up your time with the books; Just look at pictures and talk about the pages first

  • Great Places to follow on Insta

  • Make masks, hand washing as part of your routine

  • Try letting them practice on babydoll/stuffed animal
