Just when I thought we were past Sandra Boynton’s board books, along comes The Bunny Rabbit Show! — not just one of the cutest bunny books we’ve ever read, but also perfect for psyching the kids up for their year-end performances in school.
Are You a Cow? is a simple but effective book elevated by the cute illustrations. With this book, the child learns to identify various animals by answering the “Are you a ____?” questions. Tots will also enjoy answering with their favourite word — “No!”
Pajama Time! is a fun book about animals wearing pajamas of all sorts to bed, written almost with an in-built beat that you can’t help but bop along to as you chant/sing the words. “Pajammy to the left, pajammy to the right! Jamma jamma jamma jamma PJ!”
Opposites is a cute book that uses short rhyming phrases and a lovable cast of animals to illustrate the concept of opposites.
As the title suggests, the dogs in this book make different barking sounds that you will have to follow as you count them. The kids love it, but you’ll probably need some time to catch your breath by the end!
This cute board book teaches colours by featuring animals wearing different items of clothing.
A turkey who can’t seem to wear the clothes the right way is used for comic effect on each spread — “Blue hat, green hat, red hat, oops!”
Oh My Oh My Oh Dinosaurs! is a simple and fun board book that uses short rhyming phrases and dinosaurs to illustrate opposites.
Moo Baa La La La is a short, fun-to-read board book on animal sounds with adorable farm animals and catchy rhymes.
Here’s a cute animation of the book, though it’s missing the ending:
