  1. Hide and Seek

    Hide and Seek

     

    Japanese author/illustrator Taro Gomi has hidden all sorts of normal objects such as gloves, hearts, socks, scooters, and flags inside pictures for a look and find experience for the very young.  The pictures are challenging but not too challenging for a young toddler or preschool child.  A wonderful book to share as a lap book, or during storytime to see who can spot the item first.

  3. Jane Eyre & Wuthering Heights

    Jane Eyre
    Wuthering Heights

     

    The Little Miss Bronte series, part of the BabyLit book series published by Gibbs Smith, are an elegant way to introduce the youngest child to the world of classical literature.  Jane Eyre is a counting primer, and counts drawings, trees, pearls, and books, with quotes interspersed, such as "this book I had again and again perused with delight".

    Wuthering Heights is a weather primer, so for breezy, the quote is "the weather was sweet and warm" and for stormy we read, "the storm came rattling over the Heights in full fury."

    Are You a Cow?

     

    "HEY! I'm a chicken. Yes, it's true. Tell me!  Tell me!  What are you?"

    And so begins Are you a Cow? by Sandra Boynton, a fun call and response board book for the very youngest toddlers to enjoy.  Children will love answering the silly questions posed by the silly chicken with one of their favorite words (no).  And the book ends with the best message of all, that you are you.  This book deservedly received a starred review from Kirkus Reviews, and receives high praise from this librarian.  For ages 1-3.
