Book Number 60 – Eyes, Nose, Fingers and Toes by Judy Hindley

Book Jacket for: Eyes, nose, fingers and toes : a first book about youLittle N and I had fun sniffing our sniffers, blinking our eyes, and exploring some of the things our bodies can do.  Little N is getting to the point where he can imitate a few things, so doing some of the suggested activities in the book (singing la, la, etc.) were just right for him.

Book Number 57 – Who Am I? Baby Animals by Charlie Gardner

Book Jacket for: Who am I? : baby animalsThis was so fun to read and play with Little N.  He loved grabbing the little preview cut out and turning the page.  He would flap it back and forth when I said – peek – a- boo -not part of the story, but you can totally do with it!  The book gives clues and you guess who the animal is.  Once you see the animal, the book suggests things you can do to pretend to be the animal.  A great book for play!

Book Number 56 – Baa, Baa Black Sheep by Annie Kubler

Book Jacket for: Baa, baa, black sheep!A familiar song/nursery rhyme illustrated with simple pictures and actions for signing some of the words.  Though Little N is now 12 months, he hasn’t responded to any baby signs – meaning he won’t do them.  Of course, I’ve not done much with them with him, so it is my fault.  However, he did enjoy watching me make the signs each time we shared the book.

Book Number 54 – All Gone!

Book Jacket for: All gone!Little N loved the small size of this one – perfect for his hands.  The pages were thick – with foam fill between pages, and this made it easy for little fingers to turn.  The story was simple – each food item was named and then it was all gone!  Fun repetition around a subject I love – eating.  Bonus – the book comes with tips on how to share the book with your baby – always a plus to have more ideas on how to play with your little one!
