Joey Chou’s Make & Play Farm is unique and creative, packed with many opportunities for imaginative play and storytelling. This book is enormous fun, and emphasises that books are full of possibilities.
‘Shhh…everyone is fast asleep on the farm.’
‘Who can you see cuddled up in the barn?’
The language is simple and tells a beautiful story about the hungry caterpillar heading to his bed upon some leaves, while saying goodnight to his friends along the way.
I am always on the lookout for board books that I can use for Baby and Toddler Storytime sessions at the Library or to give as gifts. These are just 4 of many books that I think have something special about them and want to share with you.
Detective dog is on a mission to find the missing books from school. Another outstanding book by the talented Julia Donaldson
This book is adorable, fun and quality reading material from Nosy Crow. These books continue delight me in how well they have been written for young children, and how well they support other developmental areas such as find motor and communication skills. There is so much to love about this book for 1 to 3 year olds and this is for sure going to be well read in storytime this year for me.
There is so much to love about this book especially if you want to learn how to say “I love you” in English, Spanish, Japanese, Mandarin, and French. With some words on each page and buttons to press to hear the pronunciation of “I Love You”, this book has the right combination to engage your child in languages by site and sound.
The newest two books in the Alphaprints range – Happy Dog & Quirky Bird are a wonderful addition to these touch-and-feel textured prints and fingerprint embossed pictures. These highly creative books are humorous, with pictures that are different to your average hardback book.
To the children out there. Books are a beautiful gift of imagination, knowledge and being lost in worlds where anything is possible. Enjoy this gift, soak it up and let your imagination soar.
