🎉 It’s a wrap on the literacy-themed November Community Access Day at Betty Brinn Children’s Museum! I had a blast signing books, giving away an adorable Melissa & Doug kitchen set, and having chats with parents about math talk.

Did you know? Everyday chats with your little ones, filled with language about counting, sorting, matching, and exploring sizes and shapes, help unlock a world of math-related concepts and vocabulary.

In my book “Reading for Our Lives”, we explore the essentials:

🔄 Taking turns

❓ Asking questions

👉 Labeling & pointing

💬 Keeping the conversation alive

Using simple yet powerful language (think: big, bigger, biggest) transforms how kids view and describe their world. Let’s make math fun and engaging, one conversation at a time!
