Tip » Read the names as
you point to the adult and
then the young of each
kind of animal. Then make
a game of it: name and
point to one animal and
ask your child to name and

Rescue
Truck, truck, moose.
Truck, truck, moose.
Sticky muck,
the truck is stuck! . . .

Tip » If you enjoy singing with your little one, sing this
story-poem to the tune of “Hot Cross Buns.”
The moose family got it loose.
WHEE!

SILLY

Tip » Does your child climb all over


you? Of course! It’s evidence of
complete trust, closeness, and love.
Savor those moments!
