My Animals is a high gloss board book using black and white images with tiny splashes of bright colors. The book offers peek-a-boo holes so toddlers can see a glimmer of what’s on the next page or they can grab and turn each page themselves. When they do, they’ll get a new peek-a-boo surprise; it might be an eye, or a fish, or a branch! Each animal is named and shows a little bit of their environment. This book is perfect for any baby—or baby shower!
My First Touch and Feel Seasons book is as the title suggests, a book about our four seasons, from winter snow to summer sunshine. It’s the newest addition to the My First Touch-and-Feel series! This book is so cool and engaging; each page offers a texture for little hands to feel. There’s a quilted jacket for fall, a fuzzy-fleecy coat for winter, a slippery yellow slicker for a rainy spring, and a soft striped t-shirt for a summer day at the beach. Young children will discover the connection between words and objects through the simple act of touching. They’ll also learn colors, temperatures, and activities for each season. The illustrations are bright, charming, and eye-catching, and have words to describe each one. Plus the back of the books offers a spread featuring a fun matching game to test kids’ seasonal smarts.
Because of an Acorn is a beautifully illustrated book that allows you to wander down a delightful forest path. Children will learn what happens when a tiny acorn is allowed to grow into a tree and as a result into a flourishing forest. As the tree grows, birds, bugs, and animals find food and shelter. The illustrations are so quaint and inviting; kids will find it hard to put down. The very back of the book shares how important each tree is to our ecosystem and share what we can to do help.
