Every once in a while, a board book will be as hilarious for the grown-ups as it is for the child. "Moo, Baa, Lalala" by Sandra Boyton certainly fit the bill for me.
We were first given this funny baby book by our oldest son's therapist when he was a baby receiving therapy following a major stroke. She said the sounds and repetition would be great for his verbal development. Not only was it great for his development, but was one of those picture books that you just want to read again and again. He soon not only was making the sounds, but we both had it memorized and it served as a fun car game to recite the whole book.

- Practice making the animal sounds. With your child sitting in your lap, make eye contact and make the sounds. See if they will copy you. Try making the sounds loudly, quietly, quickly, slowly, or in a silly way too. Smile and have fun with it and your baby will too. And remember, their attention span is not super long, so if they are getting bored take a break and try again later. Skills: language development, social development.
