From dawn to the setting sun, children enjoy the beautiful sunshine! The sun helps a seed to grow. The sun puts freckles on our cheeks. The sun makes the ocean waves “flash and glimmer”. The evening sun makes the shadows stretch long. And finally, a beautiful pink sunset closes the day and it’s time for bed.
From the first snow of Winter to the last slushy melt of Spring, the different types of snow are perfect for children to play in! The children can make snow angels, skate on the ice, build snow forts and snowmen, and have a snowball fight. But some types of snow are not so fun, like sleet and hail. It’s difficult to shovel snow off the driveway. Even so, it certainly is lovely to see all the holiday lights sparkling on a blanket of snow.
Duckling is looking for a new place to sleep. She tries fox’s den, but it’s too muddy. She tries frog’s hollow log, but it’s too damp. Owl offers his nest up in a tree, but it’s too high. Finally Duckling finds the perfect place to sleep- her own mother’s cozy nest!
Duckling is such a cute little character! The story is sweet and engaging, and I love the die-cut openings in the pages. You get to peek through to the dens and warrens of all the little animals on the next page, and it’s very clever the way the illustrations from the previous page line up.
In the board book, children are trying to bake little cakes, but the kitty keeps getting in the way! They get out all the ingredients, and mix the salt, flour, and baking powder. Kitty tries to spill the flour! They add butter and sugar. Maybe a little sugar gets on their hands and they eat it. The eggs are accidentally broken on the floor, and kitty licks up some of the egg! The children mix in the milk and vanilla, and the cakes are ready to bake. They add a delicious frosting and it’s time for tea!
This is such a cute little book! The text is very simple and short, just right for tiny readers. The whole book has such a soothing and calming atmosphere, and the antics of the kitty are so hilarious!
Drilo el cocodrilo tiene un medidor de emociones (el emocionometro) que puedes usar para determinar tu emoción actual. Para cada emoción, hay un amiguito que nos habla de esa emoción. Ya sea que esté feliz, triste, enojado, celoso, asustado o enamorado, el medidor de emociones lo ayudará a navegar esas emociones fuertes.
En la parte posterior del libro de cartón, hay una rueda de emociones real que puede girar para mostrar su emoción actual. Y hay un lugar en la rueda para mostrar si la emoción es fuerte o ligero. ¡Me encanta que hace que el libro sea especial!
The wolf searches for little pig in the tree, behind the rock, and in the house. The reader can see little pig hiding, but the wolf cannot. Little pig keeps running to a new hiding place, but when the wolf finally finds him, little pig says, “I told you I don’t want to play hide and seek anymore!” and little pig runs away from the wolf.
I’m not really sure what is going on in this board book. I don’t get the joke. I guess we are supposed to be worried that the wolf is chasing the pig for nefarious reasons (to eat him or blow down his house like the Three Little Pigs story), and then we are supposed to be relieved and find it funny that is was actually just hide and seek all the time. But that wasn’t really clear.
This is the perfect board book for little babies who are just learning to identify parts of the body. The children in the artwork touch their heads, shoulders, knees, and toes, and then move on to eyes, ears, mouth, and nose as well. As you sing the song, you can point to each area of the body and dance along!
I really like the bright colors and simple design of this book. It’s perfect for catching the attention of little readers!
Bo goes on an adventure at the farm! He feeds the animals, harvests vegetables and fruit, milks the cows, and collects honey from the beehive. The goats escape from their field, and he has to round them up again by feeding them raisins. He loads up his crop onto the big farm truck to take his harvest to the market.
If a bumblebee breaks his toy, he becomes a “grumblebee”. If a rhinoceros drops his ice-cream cone, he becomes a “crynoceros”. If a hamster eats an entire jar of jam, he becomes a “jamster”. Each of the animals have a twist on their name, until at the end of the book the turtle does something unexpected!
This board book is adorable! It’s especially fun to read aloud and giggle over the silly names.
This board book has a little finger puppet of Leonardo da Vinci sticking out of the book! It’s so cute and fun to play with! The story inspires little readers to be imaginative like da Vinci was. He invented new things, studied nature, and drew beautiful paintings and sketches.
