Roly-Poly Egg by Kali Stileman

Roly-Poly Egg is a lively book that centers around the rainbow spotted egg of Splotch the bird. Somehow the egg gets bounced off the tree and goes on an adventure of its own. The reader is invited to use his or her finger to follow its travels as it encounters different animals by tracing the raised dotted line. In the end, Splotch manages to get the egg back before it hatches — and the reader gets to reveal the chick inside by lifting the flaps.

Say Hello to the Animals! by Ian Whybrow and Tim Warnes

A little dog goes around the farm to say hello to the various animals in this likable rhyming book. This being a touch-and-feel book, the farm animals are covered with a velvety material that babies and young toddlers will love to run their hands across. This was one of my daughter’s favourite books when she was 12 months old.
