Benefits of Board Books and Suggestions for Classroom use
Childcare teachers always keep a supply of board books on an easy-to-reach shelf in classrooms for infants, toddlers, and young preschoolers. There are numerous benefits to books that come in board book form. Board books are made with sturdy cardboard with pages that cannot be torn. Board books are easy for toddlers to carry around. Toddlers are always very proud to own a book of their own. The sturdy pages are also easy to grasp and turn. Childcare teachers who have infants in a classroom can also take the opportunity to sit with an infant and read a board book aloud. Infants receive great benefit from hearing a book read aloud. Hearing words read from a book while looking at the pages encourages language development. It is a good idea to point to the words on the pages as you read. Early childhood educators understand that even infants learn to associate words on a page with the spoken language when a book is read often. Board books are easy for a teacher to hold while holding an infant on her lap.
