18-Month-Old’s Developmental Milestones: A Complete Guide
IDENTIFIES OBJECTS IN A PICTURE BOOK
Reading with your child is probably a regular activity in your house, but by 18-months it will be a more interactive nightly activity. Your toddler will be able to identify objects in picture books by now, pointing to each one and saying their names. Think simple words like â€œduck,â€ â€œhouse,â€ or â€œspoon,â€ and other objects that she sees not just in books, regularly in real life, too. Reading will become a more entertaining, playful activity for your toddler once she can recognize what sheâ€™s looking at. Books full of colorful pictures and objects sheâ€™s already expressed an interest in might help speed along this milestone.
