Interactive books for preschoolers are a great way to get them involved in a book in meaningful ways. Since social emotional learning in preschool is key, I created this wonderful “I Can” interactive book. Preschool children will learn important concepts about what it means to be responsible. This colorful interactive book for kids gets them reflecting on how they can and do contribute each day to their own homes and families. All you need to do to prep the interactive preschool book is print, cut out the cards, and laminate for durability. Your child will likely want to go through it again and again!

Learning About Responsibility in Preschool
SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL SKILLS FOR PRESCHOOL
YOUNG CHILDREN DEVELOP IMPORTANT SOCIAL SKILLS, HOW TO MANAGE EMOTIONS, AND WHAT IT MEANS TO BE RESPONSIBLE WITH MODELING AND GUIDANCE FROM CAREGIVERS.
Playing preschool memory games, sharing board books, or role-playing social situations are great ways to help kids learn and understand what it means to be responsible.
Just as we might teach a child to ski on the bunny slopes before heading to the top of the mountain, they need instruction on what it means to be responsible before piling on a list of chores that they must do.
This book covers many household tasks that your child might be responsible for. If there are tasks that you don’t do in your home, you can always eliminate that page from the free printable. Or you can use it as a way to talk about how every family is different.
If your chore list includes other items, like set the table, this book provides a great starting point to talk about the things your family does that might not be included.
The “I can” statements included in the interactive book are:
- Find my clothes
- Put on my shoes
- Brush my teeth/hair
- Wash my hands
- Take a bath
- Put on pajamas
- Make my bed
- Turn off the light
- Pick up my toys
- Wash the window/sweep the floor
- Water my plant
- Feed the fish/dog/cat

Why Is It Important For Kids To Learn About Responsibility?
Overall, parents want their kids to be good people. Learning how to be a productive, responsible member of a family transfers into later childhood and adulthood when we want them to be contributing members of society.
How to Make This Interactive Responsibility Book
To interact with the book and your child, read each sentence. Then, ask your child to find the corresponding picture and place it in the box.
Finally, talk about the task on the page. Do you do that? Which chore do you like the best/least? Which chores are easy/hard?

Once familiar with the book, let your child narrate each page. Don’t worry if they don’t “read” it word for word. It will be fun to hear how they interpret each page.
