Book Number 71 – Long Train by Sam Williams

Book Jacket for: Long train : 101 cars on the trackVery cool book – 101 trains – each one with a flap to open and see what the car is carrying.  Definitely too much for Little N at this stage, but I will be checking this out again when he is a bit older.  There are some rhymes throughout the story, but the whole thing is not in rhyme.  Lots of fodder for vocabulary practice!

Book Number 64 – Who Loves You Baby? by Nina Laden

Book Jacket for: Who loves you, baby?The cut outs allow the mirror at the end to show through, and therefore the baby becomes all the animals.  A sweet story with lots of rhymes – lucky ducky, etc.  At the end, the mirror is larger for baby to admire himself.
