I love Karen Katz's series of baby board books. They are perfect for development: bright vivid colours, and simple rhyming text. My new favourite is Ten Tiny Babies. One tiny baby starts to run. Along comes another... to have some fun! Follow along with the babies as they eat, jump, bang and shout. And more and more of them join in the merriment. Finally all ten babies fall asleep in their beds. A perfect pick for a brand-new baby basked or to share with your favourite toddler.
I am so excited about this book by Frank Viva. Along a Long Road follows a bicycler through a riding adventure. Track his travels along a bold yellow road that lead him through the forest, around a town, by the sea and back again. Ride up and around, along and through, out and down. The simple graphic illustrations remind me vaguely of Charley Harper's sparse style, and of that time period. Even though the text is quite simple - I think you could have a lot of fun reading this story aloud as there are subtle objects and detail that you can discuss with your child.
