My First Book Of Things to Learn/My First Book of Things to See Compiled by Tiger Tales

learnClassic concepts get a brand new look in these two My First Books compiled by tiger tales.

My First Book Of Things to Learn shares colors, animal noises, shapes, baby animals, numbers 1 – 10, and objects in a child’s world all in bright colors. From pink flamingos to the baa of a sheep, from heart-shaped balloons to penguin chicks, and from 10 ladybugs to a toothbrush and toothpaste, Things to Learn will engage your child ages 3 to 7.

In My First Book of Things to See, little ones get a glimpse at what they will find at the park, on the farm, at the beach, at preschool, at the zoo, and at a birthday party. Everything from slides to tractors, to crayons, and more is included in this sturdy book filled with pictures and simple labels.

In addition to their nice size (8 5/8 x 8 5/8″), the bright colors, sturdy construction, and tabbed pages make these a wonderful addition to your preschooler’s library. The simple labels will help with vocabulary and word-picture association, and the variety of objects featured will provide tons of fun. I could see these being packed in a bag to take along on a road trip, picnic, or visit to the zoo so youngsters can identify objects from the books within their surroundings.

Highly recommended.

Old MacDonald Had a Farm and Other Favorite Children’s Songs

It’s time to sing along to twelve children’s favorites. From “Old MacDonald Had a Farm” to “Skip to my Lou,” and from  “I’m A Little Teapot” to “Pop! Goes the Weasel” and more, these children’s classics are sure to get you and your toddler in happy mood. Accompanied by the fun and beautiful artwork of Hannah Wood, your child will be thrilled to call this book his own.

Wood has created a wonderful niche for herself. Just like in This Little Piggy and Other Favorite Action Rhymes and Hey Diddle, Diddle and Other Favorite Nursery Rhymes, she is reimagining classics for a contemporary audience. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!

Hello, Bugs! and Hello, Animals! by Smriti Prasadam

Get ready to introduce your little one to beautiful bugs and popular animals in these two books from author Smriti Prasadam.

 In Hello, Bugs!, your child ages 2 to 5 will get to explore ten lovely bugs, their actions and sounds. From the ladybug who scurries to the flit, float of the butterfly, this white and black book with splashes of colorful foil will catch your youngster’s eye and make him eager to touch and learn.

Then comes, Hello, Animals! It has the same black and white pages with sparkly touches of color, but this time your little one is learning about ten loving animals. The Panda goes “crunch, munch” when it eats, while the dog says, “woof, woof” and the penguin walks with a “waddle, waddle.”

 I can only imagine how difficult it must have been for author, Smriti Prasadam to communicate these concepts so succinctly.  Artist Emily Bolam did an excellent job of providing the visuals to help readers grasp those  concepts.

Hello, Bugs! and Hello, Animals! make a great gift any time of the year.

    Five Little Pumpkins Illustrated by Ben Mantle

     Five little pumpkins are sitting on the gate. Night falls and they are soon joined by a witch, some ghosts, and a few little black spiders.

    The classic story of the five little pumpkins is brought to life again by artist Ben Mantle. A perfect Halloween read, my daughters are familiar with Five Little Pumpkins  from elementary school.

    This board book with padded cover is the perfect size for little hands, and it will get your youngster counting.

    My one tiny complaint is that it is designed with black text on a dark background. I had trouble seeing some of the text, as did my daughter when she tried to read it aloud. The page where the lights went out had white text and you could really see the difference it made.

    Animals Go and Animals Talk by Emily Bolam

    As I mentioned in my last post, tiger tales (an imprint of ME Media, LLC) sent me some books to review. We are going to get started on these reviews with board books that are written and illustrated by Emily Bolam.

    In Animals Go, a Touch, Look, and Learn! book, children ages 2 – 4 are introduced to animal movements. Using words like crawl, climb, and slide, your toddler will be entertained by the vibrant colors and textured pages.

    Animals Talk, another book from the Touch, Look, and Learn! line uses the same bright and bold illustrations and textured pages to bring animal sounds to your toddler’s world. Buzz, moo and more fill the ten pages of this book that will delight your toddler and encourage him to explore the world of animals and the sounds they make.

    Bolam has illustrated over 100 books for children for many different authors. In Animals Go and Animals Talk she proves why her artwork is so popular. These books are absolutely adorable. Even my six- and eight-year-old enjoyed touching the pages of this book and reading along.

    You can check out Bolam’s website for more of her work. Previously released books in this series include: Colors and Counting.

    Animals Go and Animals Talk are great books to entertain and educate your toddler.
