perfect for the very young

Jerry Pinkney can do no wrong. His latest, TWINKLE, TWINKLE LITTLE STAR (Little Brown 2011) combines the familiar song (and some new verses I must admit I did not know) with spreads of textless "narration" as an adventurous squirrel sails off into the sky. <494>

Count with the count in COUNT DAGMAR by J. Otto Seibold (Chronicle 2011). This is a board book with flaps to lift as readers count along with Count Dagmar from castles to bats to pumpkins, just in time for Halloween. <495>

ANIMAL BATHS by Bob Barner (Chronicle 2011) shows how different animals prepare for the start of every day. Combing hair, showering, cleaning ears: there is much here for parents to share. <496>

  1. These three books look like they would be perfect for my two-year-old. The illustrations look very calming and peaceful in Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star (a perfect way to drift off to sleep). The lift the flaps in Count Dagmar is a great way for little ones to see if they are learning their numbers. My son loves books about animals and would like to see them doing the same things he does.
