Observe the child during doll play with an adult.
Ask the child, “Do you want the big doll or the little doll?” Let the child take the desired doll. Then find the big and little hats, pants, shoes, etc. for each.
The child retrieves the item requested.
Encourage parents to use descriptive words with their child, including size and color words (though the concept of color as a characteristic is just emerging).
