Bathing and Playing by Liesbet Slegers

Two adorable books by Liesbet Slegers made their way to my home. The first, Bathing, shows the cute little boy getting ready for his bath, washing up, having his hair washed, and playing with his toy boat until it’s time to get dried off. This is an excellent board book to encourage your toddler to make his or her way to the bath and have fun doing it.

The second book, Playing, features the same smiling toddler playing with a variety of toys: his car, his blocks, his ball, his drum, his book, and his wagon, which he uses to stack up all his toys in and wheel them away. This book inspires imagination and encourages the youngest of kids to help clean up.

Both of these books is geared toward toddlers 12 months and up. They were first published in Belugim and Holland, then translated for an American audience.   What I enjoyed about reading these two is that it reminded me of when my girls were younger and simple books such as these could mean so much to them. Both girls grew up on a variety of board books, which helped them appreciate reading early on.

The illustrations in each book are silly and sweet with bright colors. Even though these books are too young for both my daughters, the Lil Princess (7) enjoyed reading them a couple of times. They reminded her how far she has come in her reading.
