Spot the Dot is a strikingly colourful and interactive book that is bound to bring more than a spot (pun intended) of cheer.
We’re big fans of the dynamic duo of Steve Jenkins and Robin Page, who create stunning non-fiction picture books that really appeal to children. The Caldecott Honor What Do You Do With a Tail Like This? — which we own and reviewed previously — is my son’s favourite non-fiction book. Well, at least it was until he was introduced to Animals Upside Down.
Reading Sounds of the Wild: Ocean is quite possibly the next best thing to bringing your kids to the ocean, or better yet, deep-sea diving.
Since the latter is not feasible and it’s unlikely that most kids will be lucky enough to get a chance to get up close to marine animals, this book does an amazing job of bringing the sights and sounds of the ocean right to them.
Brush Your Teeth, Please is a fully interactive pop-up book that makes toothbrushing fun for kids by asking them to help clean some animals’ teeth by moving a “toothbrush” back and forth, up and down, and all around, respectively — just like the actual brushing motions — as they brush the teeth of various animals.
