This 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!
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.
On each page, baby sees a different color. Then, there are four sample objects listed. The pictures and colors are vibrant, and the pages of this board book are also thick – easy to turn pages.
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!
Max and Ruby clean up their toys before going to bed. Everything goes in its place. The cupcake seems out of place, but Max finds the perfect spot for it – his tummy. Not a typical touch and feel book, but the raised surfaces make it inviting for hands to explore.
A fun bedtime story. Lots of catchy rhymes topped off with familiar bedtime routines (except for exercising). I think I enjoyed this more than Little N, but moms need some fun too!
This touch and feel book and some interesting textures – the sticky mud for example, but still not quite as much variety as I would have liked. However, I think it would be tough to have a lot of variety for transportation vehicles. Little N liked the size of the book – perfect for his little hands.
